Liverpool could make a blind signing before the window closes – our opinion
Speculation is mounting Marcelo Brozovic at Liverpool could arrive this summer.
The Reds have been relatively inactive in this transfer window since signing Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen.
The young Scottish right-back was Liverpool’s third signing this summer, following Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho from Merseyside.
There is no doubt that Nunez, with an investment of £85million, is Jurgen Klopp’s star addition to the transfer window.
In terms of value, however, Brozovic might be the German’s best deal.
Marcelo Brozovic at Liverpool?
According to Calciomercatoweb, as covered by HITC SportsLiverpool are interested in the Inter Milan midfielder.
The report adds that Klopp could offer Roberto Firmino in a swap deal.
As brilliant as Firmino over the years, he will be the Reds’ third choice this season, behind Nunez and Diogo Jota.
And if Liverpool can offload the 30-year-old, while signing a player, they desperately need, well, that would pass for blinding business.
Thiago Alcantara added to Klopp’s injuries on Saturday when he started against Fulham, joining Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and Naby Keita on the missing list.
And remember, these are all midfielders.
Although Keita is coming soon, the same cannot be said for the other three.
Midfield is a priority area for Klopp to suddenly strengthen and if they can bring in someone of Brozovic’s vintage, in exchange for someone who will effectively be a team player this season, that’s an irresistible affair.
It’s sad, given how phenomenal Firmino has been, but Marcelo Brozovic at Liverpool is better for the club than keeping the South American and not signing anyone in midfield.
