Liverpool Receive Update In Pursuit Of This Serie B Prospect: Should The Reds Make A Move?

According to a recent report by Inside Futbol, Brescia are set to demand a fee in the region of €50m if they manage to secure promotion back to the Serie A this season. The same report has also revealed that the Italian outfit are expecting a bidding war in the summer for their prized asset who has gathered Liverpool’s attention in recent weeks among many other clubs.

This recent development won’t be a welcome one for the Reds and might be a blow to their chances of bringing the Italian starlet to Merseyside in the near future. A hefty price-tag of €50m does not reflect the player’s real value so Liverpool would be better of spending that kind of a fee on a more proven midfielder.

The Serie B talent has been dubbed as the ‘new Andrea Pirlo’ after he put in a series of sensational performances for Brescia during this campaign which has also seen him be rewarded with a spot in Roberto Mancini’s Italy squad last year. However, the Italian teenager was an unused substitute during that contest and is yet to represent his nation at the senior level. To his credit, he has secured 11 international caps for Italy’s Under-19 team.

Tonali came through the youth ranks of Brescia before finally managing to break into their first-team at the start of last year. The Lodi born wonderkid has featured in 20 matches for the Serie B outfit this term, scoring two goals while grabbing five assists in the league. His remarkable contributions on the pitch have helped Brescia climb to the top of the Serie B standings.

The 18-year-old is still quite raw and needs to work on improving some aspects of his game if he wants to prove himself at the highest level. The Italian starlet has a wide range of passes under his belt while his ability to distribute the ball with accuracy has raised his profile in the Serie B so far in this campaign. He boasts outstanding ball control which helps him retain possession in midfield even when is pressed by the opposition midfielders.

The acquisition of a bright young talent like Tonali would have undoubtedly bolstered Liverpool’s youth set-up which is also brimming with promising young talents such as Ki-Jana Hoever,  Bobby Duncan and Rhian Brewster. A potential move for Tonali will fit the club’s owner, Fenway Sports Group’s mantra of developing youngsters into long-term assets for the organisation.

With a crop of fantastic young prospects such as Ryan Kent, Harry Wilson and Ovie Ejaria all set to return from their respective loan spells in the summer, the Merseyside outfit’s future is looking quite bright and vibrant at the moment. Thus, we can conclude that the Reds are better of splashing €50m on someone who can immediately strengthen Klopp’s first-team rather than on a player like Tonali who has incredible potential but is far from a finished product.
