Lazio’s Candreva is also on the wish list for Man United.
Lazio winger Antonio Candreva has emerged as a transfer target for three Premier League sides, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United all interested, according to the Daily Express.

The Italy international is part owned by Udinese and the Serie A club are prepared to give up their share in the player, although as yet no agreement has been met.
This is due to the fact that Lazio want to pay in installments, whilst La Bianconeri want the whole fee upfront and as Candreva approaches the final year of his contract things are yet to be sorted out.
Both parties want the issue resolved before the 2014 World Cup – a tournament in which the 27-year-old is likely to be playing with the national team – but if not England is a desired destination for the attacking midfielder.
Candreva is a huge admirer of the Premier League and with the Reds having shown interest for the longest, they appear to be leading the race to secure the Italian’s signature.
Yet the Gunners and United have also been keeping tabs and it’s thought an offer of around £7m would be enough to land the winger.
Candreva has been in good form this term, playing 29 league matches for Lazio and scoring seven goals and providing eight assists.
Brendan Rodgers is on the lookout for support on the wing as he seeks to improve his squad at Anfield, with youngster Raheem Sterling the only recognised player in the position at the moment.
