Liverpool target Ezequiel Schelotto has the potential to play for any of Serie A's elite, according to ex-Cesena coach Pierpaolo Bisoli.

The 22-year-old produced another superb performance in Atalanta's win over Napoli on Wednesday, as his reputation continues to grow.

Schelotto scored the second as Napoli, who thrilled in the Champions League, were downed, with Liverpool scouts having previously watched him, according to reports.

"I've always said it; he has the potential to play for Inter, Milan, Juve," former Cesena coach Pierpaolo Bisoli told

"He has incredible pace, speed and acceleration. he needs to work on the tactical aspect of things, like all youngsters, but I have rarely seen a youngster with his strength.

"If he keeps his work ethic and wants to become better he can become a champion. In Serie A not many could stop him once he starts running with the ball."

The Argentine-born Italian Under-21 could solve the club's current wide problems, with Stewart Downing having endured a difficult first season at Anfield.

The Atalanta man could make a late bid to be included in the Italy Euro 2012 squad, and thrust himself into the shop window this summer, which could leave Liverpool scrapping or his services.

Having seen Damien Comolli leave the club however, Liverpool's transfer strategy is likely to change, and a move for Schelotto might be halted.
