As the race for the top four heats up, clubs have begun preparations for next season, to address their limitations should they fail to make the top four or add more quality to their team if they eventually qualify for Europe’s elite competition.
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp admitted last week that they have begun talking to potential players as he likes to complete his transfer business early.
The Reds made an early swoop for attacker Saido Mane last season, and it appears they are set to do the same for Napoli’s full back Elseid Hysaj.
Hysaj has been impressing for Napoli since making the move to the Naples team.
The Defender is a target of several top European teams, but Liverpool believe that making an early effort to sign the defender would give them an advantage over their rivals.
Napoli are reluctant to allow the right back to leave, especially as they may also lose Algerian left back Faouzi Ghoulam this summer.
Hysaj has been one of the most consistent defenders in Europe since joining Napoli in the summer of 2015.
Liverpool want him to provide competition for Nathaniel Clyne.
