Tadic is said to be available at a cut price, due to a clause in his contract.
And Liverpool’s planned move for the Serbian makes Everton’s plot to snap up Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen look very risky.
Everton are said to be prepared to pay £26 million for Klaassen (The Telegraph), which makes him twice as expensive as Tadic.
And although Klaassen has impressed with Ajax over the past campaign, he is very much unproven.
There have been numerous examples of players making the switch from the Eredivisie and struggling in the Premier League.
Liverpool, however, would be bringing in proven quality by signing up Tadic.
Tadic has already proven that he is a threat in England and, at half the price, he could prove to be a much better value for money addition than Klaassen.
