Liverpool are planning an £11.5million bid for Croatin teenager Ante Ćorić, according to Croatian publication Sportske Novosti.and the Daily Mail.

He is widely regarded as one of the brightest up and coming talents as far as play-makers are concerned. He is the youngest goalscorer in the Europa League at a mere 17 years and 157 days.  He is a real prodigy.

He won ”Croatian Hope of the Year’ in 2015 which is an award which recognizes the best young talent of the year.

Liverpool are not short of play-makers boasting the talents of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana.

As with anything it could never be that Liverpool are the sole party interested. The Daily Mail is reporting that both Chelsea and Manchester City are interested. So it will come down to Jürgen Klopp or Antonio Conte or Pep Guardiola. The only difference is that City and Chelsea are likely to offer a lot more than FSG would be willing for a 19 year old.

It’s reported that Klopp is employing the same tactic as he did with Marko Grujić. Talking personally with Ćorić. Grujić said how he felt touched by the fact that Klopp contacted him directly – and who knows, perhaps this will work with another young talent?

Just like you, I am a hugely passionate Liverpool supporter. I started Rousing the Kop in January 2015 and since then it has grown tremendously and has even been nominated as 'Best New Football Blog' in the Football Blogging Awards.
