Liverpool clearly needs to upgrade their midfield in the current transfer window after a poor showing in their Premier League debut.
Thiago Alcantara has now been added to the list of injured players, and our center of the park clearly lacks both quality and depth. We might have to give up on winning the PL title if the department is not strengthened this summer.
The Merseysiders have been linked with several top-quality midfielders and once again, the name of Marcelo Brozovic is in the focus.
Last year, the Anfield club was interested in luring the Croatian international (Calcio Mercato – Inter Live) from Inter Milan but eventually, he ended up signing a new contract with the Nerazzurri.
More recently, Calcio Mercato Web has reported that Liverpool is preparing an offer to finally sign the 29-year-old star, who is one of the best midfielders in Serie A.
The Italian news source has mentioned that to improve the financial situation, Inter may sacrifice Brozovic and in such a scenario, the Reds could offer Keita or Firmino in a swap deal to lure the holding midfield star.
The former Dinamo Zagreb man won the Serie A title under Conte in the 2020-21 campaign. Moreover, the last term, he won the Coppa Italia and the Italian Super Cup under the management of Inzaghi.
He not only broke up plays well, but he also contributed to the attack by scoring three goals and dishing out four assists across all competitions.
In the 2018 World Cup semifinals, Croatia’s national team featured Brozovic as a key player. He has played 74 times for his country so far, so it is not surprising to see him at this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
The Serie A player’s current deal at the San Siro expires in the summer of 2026, and his gross pay is a little over £195,000 per week (Calcio e Finanza).
