Liverpool will need to warn off the interest of Inter Milan if they wish to complete the signing of Jan Vertonghan, according to talkSPORT.

The 24-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal earlier this summer in their search for a centre back.

However, Liverpool are now seemingly the front runners, but they are under pressure from Italian giants Inter Milan.


Injury to Daniel Agger during Sunday's defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, and the inexperience of new signing Sebastian Coates leaves Liverpool short at the back, meaning a move for another defender could be on the cards.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has already made moves for seven players during the summer transfer window, and it is yet unknown whether the club's owners will release more funds for the Scot.
