Liverpool’s midfield was all over the place against Fulham, and with Thiago out, they desperately need to strengthen this area this summer. We reported a few days ago (via CMW) that the Reds are preparing an offer for Marcelo Brozovic this summer.
Yesterday, Corriere Dello Sport (news image provided below) discussed Liverpool’s interest in the Croatian international, claiming that the Reds have yet to make an official offer.
In fact, according to the Italian press, the Nerazzurri have not received any offers for the defensive midfielder.
According to Inter Milan, Brozovic is an important member of Inzaghi’s squad and cannot be sold during the current transfer window. According to CDs, the manager does not want to deal with the problems of replacing key players.
Earlier this year, the 29-year-old star agreed on a new contract worth £195,000 a week (Calcio e Finanza) until 2026 and it is not surprising that the three-time European Cup winners want to hold on to him.
Liverpool does need to strengthen their midfield and Brozovic is a quality play breaker but the question is, do they really need a holding midfield star?
At the moment, Fabinho is our main defensive midfielder and the South American has been brilliant over the years under the management of Jurgen Klopp. Moreover, even captain Henderson has proved to be effective in the holding midfield role whenever needed.
