Igor Biscan has claimed that Croatia defender Domagoj Vida would be a great addition to the Liverpool FC team this summer.

The Reds have been linked with a surprise swoop to sign the 29-year-old World Cup star in the current transfer window.

Vida has forged an impressive partnership with Liverpool FC centre-half Dejan Lovren to help Croatia reach the World Cup final.

Indeed, the Besikitas defender impressed in Croatia’s 2-1 extra-time win over England in the World Cup last four.

Liverpool FC could be in the market to improve their defensive options this summer to provide cover for Lovren and Virgil van Dijk.

“Domagoj Vida is a great player and a great centre back because of his size and his mobility,” Biscan told BetStars.

“He brings a lot to a team and helps create great team spirit. His positioning and reading of the game is really good.

“He also scores a lot from set pieces so he can guarantee at least five goals per season, which is a great trait to have as a centre back. He would be a great addition to this Liverpool side.” 

The Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final last term as Klopp missed out on his first trophy at Anfield.

Klopp has led Liverpool FC to three finals since he took over the reins from Northern Irish head coach Rodgers in 2015.

Liverpool FC lost to Manchester City on penalties in the League Cup at Wembley in February 2016.

A few months later, the Reds squandered a 1-0 lead to lose 3-1 to Spanish side Sevilla in the Europa League final in Basel.
