A Liverpool bid for Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio is imminent, reports claim.

The Argentine is also an alleged target for Juventus after a number of imperious displays in La Liga this season and could be set to leave Estadio El Madrigal should the reported interest in his signature become serious.

Liverpool have seemingly been installed as one of the early frontrunners to sign the 20-year-old who has been linked with a move to Anfield for a number of weeks.

TalkSPORT now claims that Liverpool are poised to swoop for Musacchio - with a fee of around €9.3 million (£8 million) said to be enough for Villarreal to seriously entertain an offer.


Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli will 'enter negotiations' with the Spanish club - according to talkSPORT - and the Reds appear to be confident of Musacchio moving to Anfield in June.

Musacchio is unlikely to be the only acquisition Liverpool make in the coming weeks and months with the Anfield club expected to to sign a number of new recruits before the start of next season.
