For some time, Liverpool has been linked with Croatian international and Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic, and the latest reports are intriguing.
CMW, an Italian news outlet, reported last week that the Reds are planning to sign the Nerazzurri midfielder this summer.
Three days ago, Corriere Dello Sport reported on the Merseysiders’ interest and revealed that the Serie A giants have yet to receive an official proposal.
Today, a Spanish news source, Fichajes, has claimed that Liverpool has been closely following the situation for some time and are willing to launch an offer in the last days of the transfer window to sign the former Dinamo Zagreb player.
It is reported that the Reds have started to make a move and are soon able to offer a three-year deal to sign Brozovic. It would initially be a contract for two seasons with an option to extend for a further year.
Despite signing a four-year deal (Calcio e Finanza) with Inter – net 6.5 million euros per season (£106,000 a week) – earlier this year, he could end up leaving the San Siro outfit. The likes of Manchester United and PSG are also linked with the Croatian.
The 2018 World Cup finalist has won every major domestic prize in Italy and last season, in the Champions League Round of 16, he put in a fantastic performance against Liverpool at Anfield.
Klopp has confirmed that Naby Keita is back from injury and could feature vs Palace but the injury-prone Guinean has not been able to justify his huge price tag and has remained inconsistent.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was impressive in his first campaign under Jurgen but since getting injured against Roma (2018), he has never been the same player for the Reds, and currently, the English midfielder is out injured.
Last but not the least, Thiago Alcantara is another player with consistent fitness issues. Since joining us in 2020, he has never managed to complete a single campaign without spending considerable time on the treatment table.
In the opening league contest vs Fulham this term, the Spaniard suffered a hamstring problem and is not expected to return soon.
