Marcelo Brozović has been a regular feature in Inter Milan’s midfield and his impressive performances have caught attention from clubs across Europe.
According to FcInterNews, Liverpool sent a scout to watch him in action against AC Milan on Sunday.
It’s claimed the Merseyside club’s representative ‘studied’ the Croatia international ‘carefully’ during the derby clash at the San Siro.
After trailing 2-0 at half time, Antonio Conte’s side came from behind to seal a 4-2 win and Brozović scored his side’s first goal against Milan.
Brozović’s contract runs until 2022 and he has a release clause of €60m. The report claims his current price tag ‘can be affordable’ for English clubs, meaning Jürgen Klopp’s side will have no issue in meeting the player’s asking price.
Inter are working on renewing Brozović’s contract until 2024 and in the process, getting rid of the buyout clause. The new deal would also see his wages rise from €3.2 to €4.5-4.7m including bonuses.
The Italian club’s intention of offering a new contract to Brozović is to ‘drive away’ Liverpool or any other potential suitors interested in the Croatian.
