The name of Marcelo Brozovic has surfaced once more in connection with rumors involving Liverpool’s pursuit of high-caliber central midfielders.
According to Calcio Mercato Web, Liverpool is reportedly working on a deal that will involve a player as well as monetary compensation in order to get the services of the Croatian international footballer during the month of January.
The Croatian international is 30 years old, and an Italian news site has said that the Reds would like to move through with a deal that involves Naby Keita and cash in order to sign the player.
The Guinean international will be free to sign with any team after the conclusion of his current deal with Inter Milan in the summer. As a result, the Merseyside club will have to shell out a significant sum of money in order to sign the Inter Milan midfielder, who is estimated to be worth between 30 and 35 million euros.
Brozovic’s present contract at the San Siro is set to end in the summer of 2026, and he makes somewhere in the neighborhood of £202,000 gross every week in salary. CMW reports that Liverpool are interested in completing a transaction for the former Dinamo Zagreb player as soon as possible this month.
The senior midfielder’s primary role is that of a playbreaker, but he also has the ability to advance the ball forward and score or create goals. He has led the Nerazzurri to victory in every major domestic competition and has been an outstanding performer for Italy’s national team during the course of his career.
The veteran player, who has 83 career international caps to his name, was an integral part of the Croatian team that competed in the finals of the World Cup in 2018 and took home the bronze medal in Qatar in 2017.
Up to this point, he has played more than 300 times for Inter Milan, during which time he has racked up 30 goals and 37 assists. Unfortunately, he has had to spend a significant amount of time on the treatment table thus far this season.
Since his arrival at Liverpool in 2018, Naby Keita has been a player who is prone to suffering injuries at Anfield. Although Brozovic has a respectable injury history, things have not gone well for him thus far this season.
Because of issues with his hamstring and calf, Brozovic has only started seven games in the Serie A so far. He has been sidelined by ailments. Should Liverpool make a move to secure his signing before the deadline, in your opinion, they should?
