Liverpool in for Coric
Croatian media outlet tportal chose the headline: ‘Klopp and Liverpool have decided – Ante Coric is ours’.
The 19-year-old Dinamo Zagreb midfielder was part of Croatia’s Euro 2016 squad and is destined for the top after initially signing from Red Bull Salzburg in 2013.
According to Croatian reports, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has submitted a €15m (£12.8m) bid for the young Dinamo midfielder.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is also reportedly interested in Ante Ćorić but Jurgen Klopp is reportedly eager to get a deal completed before Liverpool’s tour of the USA.
Croatian midfield excellence
The Croatians have been producing some very high quality central midfielders in this current generation, including Real Madrid and Barcelona stars Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic and Ivan Rakitic.
19-year-old Ante Ćorić appears to be next off the production line and Liverpool don’t want to miss out like they did on Mateo Kovacic last summer.
