Valentin Stocker agent Marco Balmelli has confirmed Liverpool’s interest in the FC Basel midfielder.
The versatile 21 year-old has been attracting a plethora of interest around Europe this season with Liverpool, Wolfsburg, Roma and Juventus all reportedly keen in his services. Roy Hodgson knows all about Swiss talent, having successfully managed the national side and a season with Grasshoppers and it appears he has got his eyes firmly on one of Switzerland’s brightest prospects.
Balmelli claims that he has had contact with the Merseysiders, although no formal offer or approach has been made:
“Liverpool? Yes, with the English club I have had contact. How much? Valentin is good technically, can play multiple roles, both on the wing and the centre.” TMW
Valentin Stock recently graduated to the full national side where he has scored three goals in seven appearances to date.
