Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is looking to improve his squad for next season after a disappointing season. Many reports and media claims players linked with the club. Some being false and others not confirmed. The latest news to hit the block is the wrap up for the sensational £16million midfielder.
In as much as the back line needs reinforcement, there is the need to strengthen the midfield as well. Liverpool have been in a very critical situation to find a replacement for their legend, Steven Gerrard. It was a massive blow for Liverpool fans as sudden announcement from the club to part ways with Gerrard pierced through the fans heart.
The quest to find a replacement for Steven Gerrard still remains unsolved. Reports from many sources suggest Liverpool have reached personal agreement with Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic. The croatian has been in a terrific form for the club.
Stats shows the Croatian star made 41 appearances this season,scoring 5 and making 3 assists for the club that saw them finish 8th in the league. The 21 years old star has superb ball control, good vision, positional awareness and also tall and can take on defenders in a hurry with the help of his long legs. His primarily position is central midfield but could player up higher as a number 10 or even use the left flank.
Kovacic together with the likes of Coutinho and Henderson in midfield would be a delight to watch. It would be a force not easy to break into. He has almost everything needed to succeed in the Premiership. Has a tremendous dribbling skills that helps him to penetrate into opponent defence.
Liverpool signing Kovacic will really bring in depth in the midfield and team as a whole. With him and Coutinho feeding strikers well time passes could bring trouble on opponents defenders.
Liverpool are in pole position to lure the talented star to Anfield this summer.
