Man City, Leicester to watch Ajax fullback Tagliafico tonight

Ajax fullback Nicolas Tagliafico is auditioning for a Premier League move tonight at Liverpool.

The Daily Mail says the 28-year-old saw hopes of a projected move to the Premier League fade last summer as Chelsea found the cash to buy Ben Chilwell from Leicester while rival suitors such as Manchester City opted to prioritise other areas on which to spend their cash.

Tagliafico will sign a contract extension with the Dutch giants this week to reward his performances but there will remain an informal agreement with Ajax that he can leave should a suitable offer arrive.

Ajax wanted around £23million last summer but will consider lower offers to enable Tagliafico to achieve his dream of playing in a more competitive league.

City remain in the market for a left back, as are Leicester City, and Tagliafico figures on their lists.
