Nathan Clyne to #Liverpool?
Liverpool have renewed their interest in Nathan Clyne and they are ready to make a new bid, trying to secure his signature. According to reports, The Cormorans have already made an offer for the right-back, around €14m to be more precise. Anyway, #Southampton value their player at €20m and there will probably be a bid war, since Manchester United are also interested about a deal with Nathan Clyne.
It is good to know that Clyne has only one year left on his contract with Soton and that is why Liverpool is trying to get him for a lower price. Their relations with Soton are very good, considering that The Reds bought three players last summer from The Saints. More exactly, Lallana, Lambert and Lovren arrived at Anfield Road one year ago for more than €50m.
Nathan Clyne, 24, signed a 4-year deal with Soton in 2012, coming from Crystal Palace. He ticked no fewer than 104 games for The Saints in all competitions, scoring a total of five goals. More than that, he became a regular player in the England squad, with five caps so far.
Mateo Kovacic to Liverpool?
According to reports in United Kingdom and Italy, Mateo Kovacic agreed a deal with Liverpool, but Internazionale Milano seem to be unhappy with The Reds' offer so far. Anyway, Liverpool moved a step closer to sign the croatian.
Tuttosport reported that Liverpool are ready to offer £16m for Kovacic, with an extra £2m in add-ons. There were also other teams that showed some interest in Kovacic, but Liverpool is in pole-position right now and Kovacic is already seen as the perfect replacement for Steven Gerrard.
The last time when Liverpool bought a player from Inter Milan happened in January 2013, when Coutinho arrived at Anfield Road. That transfer was probably the best one made by the English side in the past four years. Coutinho said at that time that he was happy in Italy and now the same thing was said by Kovacic: ''For now I am still happy in Italy, but we'll see about the future. Now I'm thinking about my holidays. There is no need for us to talk, I recently renewed my contract. Of course, you never know with the transfer market.'' #Football
