Everton have reportedly made a €25million offer to land a Fiorentina attacker, while Liverpool are in pole position to land a Brazilian forward, according to Thursday’s European press.
EVERTON MAKE BID FOR FIORENTINA STAR
Everton and AC Milan are both reportedly chasing Fiorentina star Nikola Kalinic.
The Croatia attacker has already revealed his interest in making a Milan this summer but according to Sky Sport, the Toffees have already made a €25million to land the player.
The former Blackburn flop has excelled during his time at Fiorentina and is reported to have a €50million release clause in his contract, although the Serie A outfit are willing to listen to offers of €30m for a player who turned down a switch to China in January.
Despite Everton’s interest, Milan remain the favourites to keep the player in Italy and will try and are set to discuss a deal over the remaining weeks of the transfer window.
LIVERPOOL CLOSE IN ON BRAZIL ATTACKER
Liverpool are reportedly ready to step up their interest in Gremio’s highly-rated frontman Luan.
The 24-year-old only has only a year remaining on his contract and, having turned down a new deal, could be available for around £26million.
Spartak Moscow were understood to have been close to completing a deal for the player earlier this week, but the Reds are now said to be in pole position.
Luan can play as a central striker or in a deeper role and with Daniel Sturridge’s continuing injury issues would be a perfect addition for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The forward, who has also been linked with Arsenal, scored scored 12 goals for Gremio last season and he made his debut for Brazil in January.
