Jurgen Klopp is understood to be tracking a number of players who could potentially bolster his side in a title assault though, with the Italian also being a former Manchester United player, this could ruffle some feathers across the M62.

The 24-year-old who has 58 career goals could link up well with the likes of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo and may relish the chance of some regular football, with his chances at Juve limited due to the presence of Mario Mandzukic, Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala.

Yes to No

Staying in north London, though moving slightly west, Arsenal are being linked to Celta Vigo and Spain forward Nolito who has been in prolific form for his club this season.

With eight goals in 14 La Liga appearances this term, the striker could well be exactly what the Gunners need short term, until the summer when they can look to bring in a star name.

At 29, Nolito has peaked late in his career, though nevertheless has the requisite quality to fit into this current Arsenal side and do a job, also providing adequate cover for Olivier Giroud if needed.
