Roma: Paredes for Liverpool’s Benteke?

Reports say Liverpool are chasing Roma’s Leandro Paredes, currently on loan at Empoli, and could offer Christian Benteke in return.

Argentine midfielder Paredes has had an impressive season with the Tuscan outfit and is believed to have caught Reds manager Jurgen Klopp’s eye.

Corriere della Sera reports today that Liverpool are targeting the 21-year-old for this summer and could be willing to offer Benteke in return.

The Belgium striker arrived at Anfield from Aston Villa last summer but has struggled to settle and his relationship with Klopp has failed to take off.

The newspaper writes that Roma were after Benteke last season before choosing to go for Edin Dzeko.
