Liverpool may have a chance of signing Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic this summer, but no contact has been made thus far.
That’s according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, who claims the 30-year-old could perhaps be on the move at the end of the season.
Writing in his Daily Briefing column for CaughtOffside’s Substack, the reporter acknowledged rumours linking the Reds with the Croatia international.
“I’m aware of some reports in Italy linking Marcelo Brozovic as a target for Liverpool, but my understanding is that there have been no contacts at this stage,” Romano explained.
“But Brozovic could be an option for many clubs in the summer as he could have chances to leave Inter, it will also depend on the manager situation.
“In January his name was discussed with Barcelona.”
As per a report from FC Inter News, Jurgen Klopp is considering Brozovic ahead of the summer transfer window.
Liverpool haven’t made contact for Brozovic
Although he is an excellent player, Liverpool plotting a move for Brozovic doesn’t really make much sense.
At 30 years old, the Croatian is either beyond, or close to going beyond, his peak as a footballer.
By the time he would have arrived at Anfield, he wouldn’t be far off 31, meaning he would probably only have a few years left at the top level.
Therefore, despite his current quality, the Reds need to look elsewhere, as they require younger talent who they can build around for years to come.
It wouldn’t be sensible to pay a fee and then match Brozovic’s £184,000-a-week salary, when they could just invest that money in somebody younger.
