Liverpool have reportedly offered €21m for Leandro Paredes, but Luciano Spalletti declared he wants to keep the Roma midfielder.
Paredes already attracted a lot of attention thanks to his performances while on loan at Empoli last season.
Now the Sunday Express claims that Liverpool are prepared to pay £18m (circa €21m) to sign the Argentine.
However, only yesterday Roma Coach Spalletti told Sky Sport Italia and Mediaset Premium that he wanted Paredes off the market.
The 22-year-old was very impressive filling in for Daniele De Rossi in Saturday’s 4-0 Serie A victory over Udinese.
While Paredes was on the exit list earlier this summer, the Giallorossi now seem set to keep him, having also rejected offers from Milan.
