Liverpool line-up Juve star Milos KrasicLiverpool line-up Juve star Milos Krasic

Liverpool are are lining up a summer move for Juventus outcast Milos Krasic.

The Serbian winger has made just seven Serie A appearances this season after falling out of favour with manager Antonio Conte.

Krasic was expected to leave Turin in January but Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp had a loan loan bid turned down by the player.

He eventually stayed put in Juventus after the transfer window shut – and has not featured since.

Now a summer departure is almost inevitable and there is no shortage of clubs currently in the hunt for the 27-year-old, who joined Juve for around £13 million in 2010.

It has been reported that Fenerbahce have already bid £10m for Krasic, but the winger is not keen on a move to Turkey.

Chelsea Legend – Gianfranco ZolaChelsea Legend – Gianfranco Zola

Gianfranco Zola spent the first decade of his career playing in Italy, most notably with Napoli, alongside Diego Maradona and Careca, and at Parma, before moving to English side Chelsea, where he was voted Football Writers’ Player of the Year in 1997 and Chelsea’s greatest ever player.  He was capped 35 times for Italy.

Zola helped Chlesea win four trophies and scored the winner in the 1998 European Cup Winners’ Cup Final just seconds after coming on as substitute. In all Zola, scored 80 goals in 312 games, with many of them being spectacular efforts.

Above all, Zola always played football as if he enjoyed it and was almost universally popular amongst opposition fans.
