Reports are out claiming that Inter Milan are closer to selling Mateo Kovacic to Liverpool.
The Croatia international midfielder has been the subject of talks between the two clubs for several weeks.
CalcioNews24 reported that Inter plan to sacrifice Kovacic, who has long been a target for Liverpool.
The 21 year old struggled to find his position under Roberto Mancini and with two midfielders coming in, he’s likely to be pushed out.
Inter hope to get around €28m (£20m) plus bonuses for Kovacic, who is still only 21 years old and already has 18 senior caps for Croatia.
Liverpool have a five-year contract lined up for the player.
