The Reds have long admired the Serbian forward/winger, with rumours persisting that the Anfield club have been monitoring the player as far back as the Rafa Benitez reign.
Krasic came to prominence in the Russian Premier League with CSKA Moscow and his performances for the Serbian national team – especially on the way to qualifying for the 2010 World Cup – which earned him a move to Serie A giants Juventus for a reported €15 million.
After a promising start to life in Italy with some early impressive performances in which he both scored and created goals, many dubbed the skilful winger the ‘new Nedved’. However as Juve started to struggle, so did his form, and once new manager Antonio Conte took over, Krasic fell out of favour – making just 7 appearances last season.
It was rumoured he came close to making a switch to White Hart Lane in the January transfer window, but the deal fell through and now, still unwanted by Juventus, his availability has alerted several clubs with Liverpool now said to be discussing terms.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce tried to steal a march on the Reds by visiting Italy and holding talks with Juventus officials earlier this week, and was said to be interested in taking Krasic on-loan. However he was told the new Serie A champions want to sell the 27-year old, paving the way for Liverpool.
Another Juve player on the Reds radar in the past, Dutch winger Eljero Elia, is also said to be available.
