Lazio have told Liverpool FC that they will have to shell out £35m if they want to sign goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Sport Italia, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Serie A side have set a significant asking price for the goalkeeper, who has been touted as a possible target for Liverpool FC this summer.

The Reds are believed to be on the lookout for a new shot-stopper this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his squad at Anfield ahead of next season.

The Merseyside outfit are likely to be looking for a new number one after Loris Karius’ Champions League final nightmare last month.

According to the same story, Liverpool FC have already made contact with Lazio and their interest in signing the 23-year-old Albanian goalkeeper is “serious”.

The same article says that Lazio would be obliged to accept an offer of around £35m from Liverpool FC for Strakosha.

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC have already made their first signing of the summer transfer window after having wrapped up a deal to bring Brazilian midfielder Fabinho to Anfield from Monaco.

The Reds will be aiming to mount a Premier League title challenge next term after their fourth-placed finish last season.
