Liverpool are chasing Atalanta winger Ezequiel Schelotto. The Argentine-born midfielder is on the brink of an Italy call-up and was watched by Liverpool scouts in yesterday's draw against Inter Milan.

Schelotto's agent is due to fly to Italy this week from Argentina with speculation swirling over the interest of Liverpool and Inter Milan, where president Massimo Moratti is a big fan of the Atalanta No7.
