Liverpool-linked Federico Chiesa has been made surplus to requirements at Juventus and could leave for £21 million, according to reports.

The Reds have been frequently mooted with the Italian international in recent years, although there is no suggestion that the club have ever had a desire to sign the 26-year-old. Chiesa has entered the final 12 months of his contract in Turin and from January, he will be able to hold pre-contract talks over a free transfer.

Juventus managed a third-place finish in the Italian top-flight last season but finished some 23 points behind runaway champions Inter Milan. The 26-year-old was heavily involved for Massimiliano Allegri's side making 33 appearances in Serie A, as well as four in their Italy Cup success, scoring ten goals in all competition - nine in the league.

Fabrizio Romano has reported that the Italian giants are considering making Chiesa available for €25million (£21m) with add-ons. New head coach Thiago Motta has seemingly cast the right-winger aside and is not apart of the former Bologna tactician's plans.

Another player heavily linked with a move to Merseyside is Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich. The versatile footballer can play both midfield and full-back but has been speculated with a departure from the Allianz Arena.

Fabrice Hawkins of RMC Sport has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs who are admirers of the Germany international. Liverpool have been suggested as a destination for the 29-year-old with previous reports claiming that Anfield was among the clubs that the former RB Leipzig man would consider joining.

A reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City was also mentioned as a desired move, as well as Real Madrid and Barcelona. Transfer reporter Romano added that there is "genuine" interest from the Premier League.
