Liverpool is planning a bid for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
According to Calciomercatoweb, the Reds are “preparing an assault” to sign the 29-year-old.
Liverpool’s offer could reportedly include either Roberto Firmino or Naby Keita.
Although Brozovic is regarded as a key player for Inter, it is claimed that their desire for ‘economic sustainability’ means that no one is untransferable. As a result, Liverpool is keeping an eye on his availability.
Liverpool’s need for a new midfielder could just have become a whole lot more urgent. Thiago Alcantara hobbling out of The Reds’ season opener was the last thing supporters wanted to see. But that’s exactly what happened.
Still, Jurgen Klopp has remained steadfast in his insistence that his squad doesn’t need another midfielder. Should Thiago be out for any considerable amount of time though, that position could be seriously put to the test.
But even if Klopp decides to change his position, it would seem entirely unrealistic that Brozovic would be a target.
But he will be thirty in November. He also recently signed a contract extension until 2026, and according to the report, he’s one of Inter’s best players.
For all of these reasons, you’d think he’d be near the bottom of Liverpool’s target list.
If they intend to raid Inter for a central midfielder, they should set their sights on Nicolo Barella.
Switching either of the two players mentioned is something that will never happen.
Firmino, who cost £29 million, is said to be on Juventus’ radar, but reports that he could leave Liverpool have been dismissed.
