Liverpool are interested in signing Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via The Express).
The 23-year-old impressed at Euro 2016 with Croatia and has attracted interest from the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid, as a result.
Inter Milan had originally captured Brozovic from Dinamo Zagreb on an 18-month loan deal last year, but manager Roberto Mancini eventually signed the Croatian on a permanent after a series of impressive performances at the San Siro.
The potential arrival of Brozovic would be Liverpool’s fourth summer signing. Jurgen Klopp has already added Sadio Mane, Loris Karius and Joel Matip while Marko Grujic has returned from loan.
As for departures, Jon Flanagan is the latest name to be linked with an Anfield exit. New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is rumoured to be interested in his former player and wants to take the 23-year-old on loan.
However, the Liverpool Echo reports that Flanagan is a part of Klopp’s plans and the German is unlikely to sanction the sell of the right-back.
Jordon Ibe, on the other hand, has left Liverpool for Bournemouth in a £15m club record deal and the ex-red was quoted in the Mirror saying:
“Bournemouth is a good club.
“They play the same football as Brendan Rodgers used to play so I like the style of play and the philosophy the manager has got.
“It is a great opportunity for me to take another step in my career and develop as a player.”
Martin Skrtel, meanwhile, has also departed the club after signing for Fenerbahce.
