Reported £8.5m price-drop should set the tone for Liverpool's summer

Nikola Milenkovic will have a price-drop this summer, according to reports. That’s exactly the kind of deal Liverpool must chase.

CalcioMercato claims Liverpool want Nikola Milenkovic this summer. They’re not the first to say it, either.

Fiorentina News have said similar. Much like the first, they believe Fiorentina are willing to sell the player.

The CalcioMercato report goes into prices, however. La Viola are willing to drop their price by at least £8.5m. That comes at a time when they want to sell a couple in order to make up for the financial loss this season.

And they won’t be the only ones.

Taking advantage

Record recently said that Sporting need to sell a player and that Reds-target Nuno Mendes is available. Il Mattino believe Kalidou Koulibaly, too, is available for the same reasons.

It’s just the nature of football at the moment. Every team has suffered this season without fans, taking huge financial hits.

But that hands opportunities to clubs like Liverpool. As they search for players this summer, they can find potential bargains.

Not the usual bargains, either. We’re not talking about relegated players or even unwanted players.

There are genuinely very exciting talents available on discounts. The kind of players, in fact, that Liverpool may target anyway.

Milenkovic ticks several boxes for them. He’s 23, experienced in a top league and playing at just under the top level. The Serbian is ready to go but with plenty of room to grow.

The price-drop only makes him more attainable. And he clearly won’t be the only one.

Liverpool will likely want a few players this summer. We imagine they’ll chase a defender, a midfielder and a forward. Well, securing the right players is going to be easier this year.

Milenkovic’s price-drop is just one example of that but there will be many more.
