Liverpool are going to be one of the teams to watch this summer, even though a big money buy would be drastically out of character. With a Premier League title under their belt and mountains of cash from various commercial deals, there will be transfer rumours aplenty. One of the latest rumours is that Liverpool have ‘studied’ Marcelo Brozovic of Inter Milan.
Brozovic has become immovable from the Inter Milan midfield in recent seasons, he has made 154 league appearances since his 2015 move from Dinamo Zagreb.
This season the Croatian has notched five assists and three goals in his 20 league starts.
He is adept at winning the ball and is a very strong passer, making him very much a Jürgen Klopp mould midfielder – tenacious with vision.
According to FCInterNews, Liverpool have ‘studied’ Marcelo Brozovic in recent games and watched him in the Milan Derby.
The report (via Sport Witness) claims that the Reds have been tracking him with an eye on activating the 27-year-old’s €60m release clause in the summer.
His current deal expires in 2022 with the report asserting that Inter are looking to extend his contract to 2024, getting rid of his release clause in the process.
What RTK has to say
At 27-years-old he seems a tad too old for Liverpool’s taste.
Although we have brought in players around that age in recent years, Michael Edwards hasn’t spent the €60m it would take anyone of the same age bracket – barring Virgil van Dijk but of course defenders’ ages are considered differently to midfielders.
Whilst he is an impressive player and his style of football suits the intense pressing Klopp demands, his age in comparison to his price doesn’t make much sense given The Reds’ transfer policy. We can’t see this one happening.
