And after hearing about their links to the Italy international, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their rumoured transfer target.

One Liverpool fan even suggested that Zaniolo could turn out be Mohamed Salah’s eventual replacement in the side.

With a star-studded team, and a strong spine running through it, it’s difficult to really suggest where Liverpool could actually strengthen their side.

Would Nicolo Zaniolo be an upgrade on Liverpool's midfield?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But one area of the pitch that has always tended to come under scrutiny during Klopp’s tenure, is in central midfield, with Graeme Souness regularly voicing his concerns over having just ‘workaholic’ players in the middle of the park.

Zaniolo’s impressive tally of six goals and two assists in just 24 games this season suggests he could add a bit of firepower from the engine room.
