New £70m Liverpool target has already stunned Anfield and spoken about Jurgen Klopp’s side
Liverpool have been linked with a lucrative move for Lazio star Joaquin Correa and the player has already previously spoken about the Reds. Jurgen Klopp is looking to bolster his attacking options at the end of the season as he goes in search of more trophies.
The Argentine has had an impressive season in Rome, with Lazio part of a three-horse title race.
Lazio are likely to fall short though with the prospect of Serie A being cancelled highly likely with Italy the worst affected country by the coronavirus in Europe.
Correa has seven league goals to his name this season in 22 appearances and has provided a creative spark behind leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile.
According to CittaCeleste, Liverpool are eyeing a summer move for the attacker.

He currently has a release clause in the region of £70million in the contract that he signed when joining in 2018.
Klopp has been aware of his quality for quite some time now, given that Correa has played against Liverpool before.
In fact, the 25-year-old has already found the net at Anfield with his former club Sevilla.
That was way back in September 2017 when the La Liga outfit travelled to Merseyside in the Champions League group stages.

Correa played the full 90 minutes and struck the equaliser for the visitors in the 72 minute.
Speaking after the match, Correa shared his admiration for Liverpool’s quality while showing he knows a thing or two about the club’s history.
“This is a really good point,” he said.
“We had to overturn the form of the game to get it.
“Liverpool are full of quality, extremely fast and we had to get accustomed to that. My goal was just what we needed.
“Luis [Muriel] nearly had the winner in added time there and that would have been great.
“They say, here, that you never walk alone and our traveling fans ensured that was the case for us too.”
Liverpool would go on to reach the Champions League final where they lost to Real Madrid in Kiev, after edging Sevilla to top spot in Group E.
It’s safe to say Correa is already familiar with some of the players he could line up alongside in attack for Liverpool.
