The Reds have already secured a deal for RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita who will join the Anfield side on July 1. However, they are expected to lose Emre Can after the end of the season, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been sidelined following the knee injury.
Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Torreira is on the Merseyside Reds radar following an eye-catching season in which he has scored four goals at Sampdoria.
His fine form has earned him a place in Uruguay’s squad for the World Cup. However, Liverpool could face competition for his signature from Serie A runner-ups Napoli.
Italian giants are considering replacements for Jorginho who has been on the verge to sign for Premier League club and earmarked Torreira as an option.
Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has insisted that he is ‘ready to stop Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League final this weekend.
Portuguese international forward has been in stunning form this campaign scoring 15 goals in the Champions League, while no player has found the net more times in the history of the European competition than he.
Real Madrid superstar will enter the match off the back of scoring 44 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions this term. However, Lovren is confident of dealing with him in Kiev.
“Throughout 15 years, every year he (Ronaldo) scores more than 30 goals. Even if he has a bad season he scores 30 goals, so you need to pay attention to that,” Lovren told reporters.
“We play in the Premier League against some of the best strikers in the world and we know how to defend like a team. Of course some parts of the game it will be one-against-one. It will be tough but it’s a challenge that I’m ready for.”
Real Madrid are favourites to win the Champions League title third consecutive time but Liverpool’s pacy game could be a key to stop Zinedine Zidane’s side.
