Liverpool appear to have a genuine interest in signing Ciro Immobile.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Liverpool are linked with surprise move for Lazio striker Ciro Immobile.
The Italy international was signed by Lazio in July 2016 from Sevilla for a fee of 9.45 million euros. The 28-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Italy.
As a member of Italy national football team, Immobile won 34 caps and he scored 7 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Liverpool.
The report claims that Liverpool manager has extensively scouted Ciro Immobile and is considering a move for the striker.
Ciro Immobile would provide a good variety to Liverpool’s attack.
According to Calciomercato, “Ciro Immobile is surely one of the most successful Italian strikers of the last five years. The former Torino star has been Lazio’s top scorers for the last two years and a half and several top clubs have been linked with welcoming his services. According to Anfield Press, the Italian striker will be monitored by Liverpool scouts next weekend when Lazio face Napoli at the San Paolo. Meantime Liverpool will also watch Immobile who will remain at Lazio until the end of the season before making a final decision about his future.”

A big money bid from Liverpool could tempt Lazio into selling their prized asset.
Ciro Immobile is also being watched by Napoli.
Signing the 28-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Jürgen Klopp.
How strong that interest is and whether Liverpool will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
