Klopp has his mind on Croatian, as Liverpool alternative to Thiago

Marcelo Brozovic TEAMtalk

Liverpool are interested in Inter Milan midfield wizard Marcelo Brozovic, claims a report.

The Serie A side are pondering selling the 27-year-old Croatian to raise capital this summer. That’s the verdict from FC Inter News via Sport Witness.

Apparently Brozovic, who signed from Dinamo Zagreb in 2015, has a number of potential suitors across Europe and Liverpool are one of those.

The Premier League champions have been admirers for a while and their interest comes courtesy of manager Jurgen Klopp, who has also “appreciated” the player for some time.

However, the report admits that’s as far as the interest goes and the Reds have not made an approach for the player. However, if he becomes available then Klopp coould make a play for the Zagreb-born star.

Klopp is tipped to add a midfielder to his squad this summer after the departure of Adam Lallana. The German boss is also mulling over more cover at centre-back after it was revealed on Friday that Dejan Lovren is heading to Zenit St Petersburg.

The Inter-based source suggest that Liverpool could though opt for Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara instead.

Klopp though was predictably coy when asked about the Spain international on Friday.



He told Sky Sports Germany: “I have no idea who will play for me next year, there is nothing to say at the moment.

Bayern in contact with Brozovic

“Thiago Alcantara is a great player, but also a Bayern Munich player. So that’s it, I’ve actually said everything. There is nothing to say about it! ”

Meanwhile, Brozovic, who is out of contract in 2022, is believed to have the offer of a new deal on the table. However, if Inter were to receive a bid close to his €60m release clause then he would be sold.

Ironically Bayern Munich are also interested in Brozovic should Thiago leave this summer. And, per the source, the Bundesliga champions have already been in contact with his entourage.
