Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Ivory Coast international starlet Franck Kessie, according to Corriere dello Sport (via the Metro).
The Premier League side, who host struggling West Ham United at Anfield in the English top-flight on Sunday afternoon, have been linked with making a move for the highly-rated Atalanta midfielder ahead of the forthcoming January transfer window.
The 19-year-old, who has 10 international caps for his country, has impressively scored six goals and provided two assists in 14 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A outfit so far this season.
Kessie, who spent last campaign on loan at fellow Italian side Cesena, is wanted by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp in the New Year market to bolster his squad and title bid this term.
However; the reports suggest that the defensive midfielder is a Manchester United supporter, plus he is also said to be attracting interest from fellow Premier League rivals Chelsea, as well as Serie A champions Juventus.
