Liverpool have reportedly activated the release clause in Lorenzo Pellegrini’s contract with Roma.
This is according to the Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport (via TEAMtalk), who boldly claim that the Premier League giants have filed a € 30million offer for the Giallorossi captain.

It should be noted that there are conflicting reports regarding Pellegrini’s contract – some sources say it expires in 12 months, while others claim the release clause becomes active next year, but the player from 24-year-old is linked with Roma until 2023.
Liverpool arguably need reinforcements in the midfield this summer, with Gini Wijnaldum due to leave the club for PSG later this month.
Thiago Alcantara joined the Reds last summer without any significant exits, but injury issues over the past 12 months have proven Jurgen Klopp’s side struggle to build on their depth.
Earlier this year we compiled a list of three players who could replace Wijnaldum this summer and our wild card was Roma’s Pellegrini.
