Liverpool have been interested in signing Croatian international and Atletico Madrid fullback Sime Vrsaljko lately.
Few days back, we covered a report (via Corriere dello Sport) claiming that Liverpool and Monaco are the main contenders to hire the services of the 25-year-old defender, for whom the Spanish side are demanding a fee worth 25 million euros.
Now, the Italian source have claimed (press image provided below) that Liverpool have made contact with Atletico’s director of football for Sime.
It is again mentioned that the price is 25 million euros ($29.6million) but this time around, Napoli are said to be in the driving seat.
Sime has made no fewer than 32 appearances for the senior national side and played both legs against Greece in the WC qualifying play-offs.
However, he has only played 477 minutes for Atletico this season and needs regular first team football to guarantee a place in Croatia’s final squad for the World Cup. Vrsaljko is a versatile talent, who is naturally a right back and can effectively play as a left back as well. In your opinion, should Klopp sign him?
