PREMIER LEAGUE champions Liverpool are the latest side to be credited with an interest in Sampdoria's Omar Colley, with Celtic also keeping tabs on the 27-year-old.

The Gambian centre-half has a release clause of around £11 million in his contract with the Serie A side and it is believed that Sampdoria will not lower their asking price for the in-demand defender.

Celtic have reportedly already made tentative enquiries about the centre-back, with reports in Italy now suggesting that Jurgen Klopp's side are mulling over a move for Colley.

Italian site The Republic say that the Anfield club have registered their interest with Sampdoria but have yet to table a bid for Colley.

Fellow top-flight English side West Ham United have also been linked with a move for Colley this summer.
