England: First Liverpool offer for Kovacic laughed off, next one…
Reports from England suggest an offer was tabled by Liverpool in the last few days for Mateo Kovacic.
The first offer was reportedly in the region of €10.5 million and was swiftly rejected. The Reds will be striking again and this time the offer should be closer to €14 (ESPN) or €17.5 (Calciomercato).
While not exactly meeting Inter’s valuation, the offer would be closer to a conversation.

Author’s note: Really? Are these figures supposed to be insults or jokes? The deal bringing him here was worth €15 million, €11 million initially with an eventual €4 million Champions League bonus to be paid for him, as an 18 year-old. He’s improved by miles in all areas of his game, and they offer basically the same/less?
Either our management flatly reject anything under €30m (for me he’s unsellable under €50m…), or I say we simply have not learned from our mistakes. Look at it this way; Kovacic has done leagues better for us in his time than Coutinho was ever able to do, yet ‘pool is offering just €2m more. Look at what other teams sell trash players for, let alone known talents. Can you tell I rate Mateo?
What do you think about the reported offer? What, if any, offer would it take for you to sell Kovacic? Comment below and let us know!
