The Italy defender is weighing up his options ahead of the summer market, with PSG said to be keen. However, Tuttosport says Liverpool have made a firm move for Romagnoli and are readying a bid for the stopper. The Premier League champions-elect are set to offer €40m cash plus Naby Keita in exchange for Romagnoli. And it’s an offer attractive for Milan’s incoming coach Ralf Rangnick, who worked with Keita at RB Leipzig.”
