Liverpool are again being linked with a potential move for Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo this summer, in a deal that could prove a big boost for Everton.
The latest report from Tuttosport, as relayed by transfermarkt, suggests that Liverpool remain keen on the player who is valued at around €60 million (£54m) by the Giallorossi.
It would undoubtedly be a good move for Liverpool, with Zaniolo considered one of Europe’s top midfield talents.
However, it could also help Everton get the best out of their own struggling star.
Moise Kean has not had it easy in his first year as an Everton player. The Italian has made more headlines off the pitch than on it and has scored just once since his eye-catching arrival from Juventus last summer.
But having Zaniolo living and playing in the same city as him could hopefully help him settle and become a better option for Everton.
The pair are considered best friends, inseparable when on international duty together, and it would be a massive help to the young Italian to have somebody like Zaniolo around him to help him off the pitch, allowing for more focus on it.
If Liverpool do make a big move for Zaniolo, then it could help Everton finally see the best of their (Sky Sports) £27.5 million recruit.
