Liverpool are likely to be in the market for a midfielder this summer if, as expected, Gini Wijnaldum departs on a free when the season is over. That has led to a situation where plenty have been quick to link potential replacements to the Reds.

One of those is Rodrigo de Paul, a 26-year-old Udinese and Argentina box-to-box player whose name has occasionally popped up in connection with Liverpool and does so again this week by way of reports out of Italy led by FC Inter News.
