Liverpool have put forward an enticing financial package to Inter Milan for 17-year-old wonderkid Sebastiano Esposito.
That’s according to FC Inter News, who suggest that their prodigal youngster wants to stay in Italy.
“In the past few months, very rich offers had arrived with the Nerazzurri: PSG, Dortmund, Liverpool and Manchester City had come forward with great insistence, but Esposito is happy at Inter and together with his parents Agostino and Flavia have rejected any kind of advances,” they write.
Esposito has made three appearances in Serie A and three in the Champions League already this term, so it’s no surprise his stock is high.
But if he wants to stay on at his parent club, as the report suggests, then good for him.
Liverpool have plenty of promising youngsters of our own coming through the ranks right now…
Curtis Jones made his Premier League debut at the weekend, while Harvey Elliott, Ki-Jana Hoever and Rhian Brewster will likely get theirs at some stage this season.
All four names just mentioned will also play in the EFL Cup v Aston Villa next week, before flying out to Qatar to meet up with the first-team for the Club World Cup.
Right now, it looks like Jones is the one most likely to get regular minutes, but long-term, Elliott and Hoever could be very, very special.
