Liverpool can sign Mateo Kovacic for €22m - report

Mateo Kovacic Croatia

Gazzetta dello Sport have stated that Inter are ready to part company with the Croatian midfielder for around £16m.

Liverpool’s season has unravelled over the last two months, with a promising run of form coming to an end in the Premier League and unexpected FA Cup elimination at the hands of Aston Villa at the semi-finals stage.

Brendan Rodgers’ men look set to miss out on Champions League qualification and as such it will be a summer of upheaval in the transfer market for the Merseyside outfit.

The Reds have been linked with a move for Mateo Kovacic, as per Metro, with the Croatian schemer impressing for Inter this season despite his club’s sub-par campaign.

Gazzetta dello Sport have stated that the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza outfit are ready to part company with the talented playmaker if Liverpool meet the asking price of €22 million, which works out around £16m.

The Reds have had success in buying from Inter in the past, with the Merseysiders landing star man Philippe Coutinho from the Italian giants.

Kovacic is regarded as one of the most promising young midfielders in Italian football and his signing would be something of a coup for Rodgers’ men.
