Liverpool are set to rival Manchester United for Atalanta defender Cristian Romero.
Reports as per Sky Italia says Liverpool have opened first contact with Atalanta to discuss about the Argentine.
Despite having already shelled out £36million on RB Leipzig centre-back Ibrahima Konate, Liverpool have asked Atalanta about Romero and evidently want to be kept in the loop about him potentially being available for a transfer.
Atalanta are set to sign Romero permanently from Juventus before potentially selling him on.
United are said to have already had one offer turned down for the defender in recent days.
