Liverpool want £11.5m Croatia midfielder – report

Liverpool want to sign Croatia Under-19 midfielder Ante Coric, according to reports in Croatia

Jurgen Klopp wants to sign £11.5m-rated Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Ante Coric in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Croatia.

Liverpool have already signed highly-rated Serbian playmaker Marko Grujic in a £5m deal after the Reds agreed a deal with Red Star Belgrade in the January transfer window before loaning the 20-year-old back to his boyhood club.

The Reds manager is thought to be keen to add more depth to his Liverpool squad after a mixed first season in charge of the 18-time English champions after he replaced Brendan Rodgers at Anfield in October.

According to Croatian publication Sportske Novosti, the 48-year-old wants to sign highly-rated Croatia Under-19 international Coric in the summer transfer window as the Reds prepare to raid Eastern Europe again.
