Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing midfielder Marcelo Brozovic this summer from Inter Milan as Jurgen Klopp looks to freshen his side up – and Reds fans have responded to the reports on Twitter.
The print edition of Libero reported this week, as relayed by SempreInter, that Liverpool want to raid Antonio Conte’s side for the 27-year-old. He has proven crucial to the San Siro side this season, starting 23 of Inter’s 26 Serie A matches this term.
Indeed, Brozovic offers quality at the base of the midfield but perhaps similarly to Jordan Henderson, the Croatian star can also play as a box-to-box midfielder. He has scored three goals for Inter this season, and created five more.
Since joining Inter from Dinamo Zagreb on an initial loan deal in January 2015, Brozovic’s reputation has only grown north. He has since clocked up 186 appearances in all competitions for Inter, an impressive amount – averaging little under 40 a year.
Such a consistent level of performance has seen Brozovic partner the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic in the Croatia national side, and Brozovic captain Inter at times under Conte this season.
Liverpool supporters reacted to the news that their club could land Brozovic, who has a £52million release clause in his contract. Many feel he would be a good signing for Klopp’s side, especially with Adam Lallana out of contract.
very good player, not worth over 50 mil even in this market. Especially at his age.

Looks like a good deal, release clause may be generous, but I just can't see it happening

Well thats a lot money, but he is very good. Still, dont believe in this transfer.

I know he’s a quality player, I enjoy watching Inter, but Fabinho back on form leaves no room for him to play plus Grujic coming back off loan to play backup for him. I doubt Brozovic would want to sit on the bench at LFC and if anything Liverpool need an attacking mid
