Liverpool ask for Emerson?

Liverpool have approached Roma for their Italian-Brazilian left-back Emerson Palmieri, according to TMW.

The report from Tuttomercatoweb suggests the Reds asked about his availability.

Jurgen Klopp wants reinforcements for the left flank and the first choice is Thomas Lemar from Monaco.

However, Emerson can play as a left-back or in a more advanced role down the left flank.

The 23-year-old is currently on the road to recovery after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in May and is not expected back in action until the end of October.

Liverpool and Roma already did business this summer for Mohamed Salah.
