Besiktas raise price dramatically on Liverpool, Everton’s World Cup target

Liverpool and Everton target Domagoj Vida’s price tag has risen dramatically, according to a report.

With the Croatia defender, who scored against Russia on Saturday, now in the World Cup semi-final, Besiktas want £31m for him, report Fanatik.

The same publication claim Liverpool and Everton have already submitted offers for Vida.

Turkish journalist Turgay Demir told A Spor last week: “Everton and Liverpool have made an offer for Vida.

“€15m (£13m) has been proposed but Besiktas will not consider a bid below €20m (£18m).”

Vida only joined Besiktas in January on a free transfer from Dynamo Kiev, having previously played at Dynamo Zagreb and Bayer Leverkusen.

A Spor claimed Liverpool were edging the race to sign the 29-year-old – with his friendship with Dejan Lovren tipped to swing the tide in the Reds’ favour.

Everton, Fulham and West Ham are also interested according to the report and Besiktas will consider offers after the World Cup.

Vida, who is contracted until January 2022, has 62 caps for his country, having debuted back in 2010.
