Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could target Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna this summer, [football] direct news understands.

The 25-year-old centre-back only just signed for the Italian champions this season, after impressing at his previous club Torino.

Liverpool had been linked with Ogbonna prior to his move, as had the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, and the Italian international may now be available again after struggling to establish himself in Antonio Conte's squad.

Rodgers made a number of additions to his back four last summer, though the likes of Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho have not been entirely convincing so far this season.

"I think we'll make at least one signing in that area this summer," a Liverpool insider revealed. "Ogbonna is one we've looked at before and it looks like he might be an option again with his current situation at Juventus."
