Liverpool have been named joint 2/1 favourites to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer by betting site Ladbrokes.
Liverpool – 2/1
Real Madrid – 2/1
PSG – 5/2
Arsenal – 4/1
Juventus – 9/2
Betting sites often makes claims like this and it’s important not to take the eye-opening odds too seriously.
The Italian stopper though is, according to the Daily Mail, set for the exit door, with Pepe Reina currently undergoing a medical ahead of a free transfer from Napoli that will go through in the summer.
Donnarumma will be extremely expensive considering that at 19-years-old, he’s considered the heir to Gianluigi Buffon’s crown and position as Italy’s no.1.
But if he fulfils his potential, it’ll undeniably be worth it.
We’re not sure though that Liverpool do have a genuine interest in Donnarumma, with it not being confirmed by any trusted sources.
Alisson from Roma is being considered, but the Brazilian will cost a similarly large amount.
Loris Karius has done well since winning a spot in the side, but the majority of fans still feel we need an elite goalkeeper purchased at the end of this campaign, with Simon Mignolet set for the exit door.
Either Donnarumma or Alisson would do us very nicely, in all honesty.
