Liverpool prepare to nick Kovacic from under Roma's noses

Despite Mateo Kovacic reaching personal terms with Roma, Liverpool are preparing an eleventh hour swoop for the player's services with a €30 million bid, according to The Mirror

Mateo Kovacic continues to attract suitors, with the latest team to join the race for player’s signature being Liverpool, according to The Mirror. Their interest comes despite reports coming out of Italy on Thursday that the Real Madrid midfielder has agreed to join Roma on a season-long loan. 

Liverpool ready to offer €30m

Although that deal is all but done, say La Gazetta, Liverpool are trying to steal Kovacic’s services at the eleventh hour by enticing him with the promise of Premier League football, and would be ready to offer €30 million euros for the privilege. If a permanent switch is not in the offing, the Reds would also be open to negotiating a temporary stay of one season. 

Roma yet to reach agreement with Real 

However, Roma are still best situated to complete the signing of Kovacic – a player they believe to be the perfect replacement for Pjancic after losing him to Juventus for €32 million. The Italian side though are yet to arrive at an economic agreement with Real Madrid for the Croatian. Kovacic, since joining Los Blancos last season, has failed to break into the first team, spending most of his time at the Bernabéu sitting on the substitutes bench.
