Manchester United are also monitoring the winger’s complicated contract talks along with the two Reds. Candreva is partly owned by Udinese, who have spoken to Lazio about buying out the Rome club’s part of the contract. But talks have not gone well, with disagreements over if the money should transfer over in payments or a lump sum.
Candreva will enter his final contracted year at Lazio in the summer, and the three English clubs are interested in making a move for the Italian in the next few months. They hope to tempt Lazio selling now, instead of risking losing the winger for free next season.
Udinese and Lazio wil have to rush their ownership talks however, with both clubs wanting the matter to be solved before the World Cup, which starts in June. With Liverpool and Arsenal both currently inside the top 4 and looking to play Champions League football, the pair are hoping to tempt Candreva away from Rome ahead of the next season. Lazio are currently 8th and outside the Champions League places.
And whilst United don’t look likely to be able to offer European football, David Moyes believes the addition of Candreva will help stop the Red Devil’s decline down the Premier League table.
