Roma are ready to accept an offer of €25m (£22m) for defender Emerson Palmieri – wanted by both Liverpool and Juventus – when the transfer window reopens in January, according to reports in Italy.

Liverpool continue to have problems at left-back with Alberto Moreno's brief renaissance in recent weeks halted after a disappointing performance against former club Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Reports in in October claimed Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp had identified 23-year-old Palmieri as a target ahead of the winter window. An anterior cruciate knee ligament injury suffered last May ended any hopes of the Premier League making a move in the summer, but with the player returning to fitness and featuring on the Roma bench in their last two games, the interest has returned.

With Aleksander Kolorov now the club's firm first-choice at left-back, La Repubblica reports Roma are ready to let the player leave to join any club ready to meet their valuation.

James Milner was Klopp's first-choice option on the left of his defence last season but sought a more orthodox option this term. Liverpool spent £10m to sign Andy Robertson from Hull City in the summer, but the Scotland international has been limited to just three appearances all season.

Alberto Moreno, whose future at the club looked bleak not too long ago, re-emerged as the club's first choice, starting 10 of the club's 11 Premier League matches and all five of their Champions League outings. A woeful performance back in Seville on Tuesday night where he was at fault for Sevilla's first two goals saw him hauled off in the second-half.

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane stuck the boot in during his appearance on ITV's Champions League highlight show, making it clear under no certain terms the Spaniard had cost his side all three points.

"What he's doing for the penalty, you wouldn't see a child doing it. It's pure madness for an international player to do that," Keane said. "You look at the free-kick he gave away, that's nothing to do with the manager. This has nothing to do with team shape or mentality. I know it's a team game, but sometimes you have to point the finger and say, 'You're killing us, you're costing us'."
