Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello is flattered to be linked with Liverpool as speculation mounts over his future.

The 22-year-old has attracted attention from a number of European clubs after putting in some impressive performances for Serie A side Atalanta this season. Reports in Italy claim Liverpool are monitoring Sportiello, who is also a reported target of Inter Milan and AC Milan. "Liverpool are definitely a great club," Sportiello said. "We are talking about one of the top clubs in the world. This is my first year as a starter and I recently signed a new contract with Atalanta. My life has changed in a few months."

Liverpool are looking to sign a goalkeeper this summer with club manager Brendan Rodgers reportedly keen to increase competition for current Number 1 Simon Mignolet.
