Liverpool reportedly failed with a £50m bid to sign Juventus defender Merih Demiral.
It is now revealed that the Merseyside giants were also interested in Demiral and they made a mammoth offer of around £50m which was rejected by the Bianconeri.
Demiral joined the Bianconeri from Sassuolo in the summer of 2019. He has been limited to only 23 appearances with injuries hampering his progress.
The Turkey international was a regular starter at the beginning of the campaign before he sustained a muscular injury in November.
Demiral has previously been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United, but nothing has materialised beyond the transfer speculation.
