Reports emanating from Italy this morning (via talkSPORT) are suggesting that both Liverpool and Chelsea are ‘locked in a battle’ to sign Palermo midfielder Armin Bacinovic in January, despite the Slovenian only moving to the Rosanero from NK Maribor at the tail-end of August.

Bacinovic has excelled during his nine games in Italy, scoring two goals, and has already been linked with a move to AC Milan when the transfer window re-opens at the turn of the year – although it would appear that the 21-year-old is keen on a move to the Premier League.

It is thought that Bacinovic will be made available for around £12 million as Palermo are understandably willing to accept a 1000+% profit on a player they payed around £1 million for just 77 days ago.

    Not bad business for Palermo… Better to sell him now that for him to have an average 2nd half to the season and go for half of the price.

    Not sure ‘pool should be looking at a player with only two months worth of top league experience. I hope they’re doing their homework on his background.
