Liverpool could miss out on signing Besiktas and Croatia centre-back Domagoj Vida as West Ham have submitted a £22million bid for the 29-year-old.

Jürgen Klopp and Michael Edwards have done a phenomenal job this summer of attracting and signing some of the most exciting footballers in the world.

A deal was agreed last summer with RB Leipzig for the purchase of Naby Keïta and already the Guinean is proving to fans why he cost £52.5million while Fabinho has quietly gone about his work in a similarly impressive manner.

Xherdan Shaqiri, while not a world-beater, will add more pace and flair to an already silly forward line but the transfer that has caught the eye of opposition supporters is the £65m deal for Alisson.

 

According to beIN Sports Turkey, West Ham have surprisingly emerged as the favourites to sign Besiktas central defender Domagoj Vida.

They have submitted a £22million and Besiktas president Fikret Orman will fly to England to further discuss a deal with Liverpool’s Premier League opening day opponents. The Reds could miss out on signing the Croatian if the two parties can agree on a deal.

Liverpool had allegedly agreed a fee with a £20million fee for Vida but if beIN Sports are to be believed, that wasn’t close to the truth.
