Liverpool: Reds ‘preparing an offer’ for Marcelo Brozovic

Liverpool: Reds ‘preparing an offer’ for Marcelo Brozovic -Liverpool News

Liverpool are ‘preparing an offer’ for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, as per Liverpool Echo writer Charlotte Coates.

The Lowdown: Thiago’s injury

The Reds suffered a tough start to the Premier League season on Saturday as they drew 2-2 away to newly-promoted Fulham, twice needing to come from behind to earn a point.

Topping off a difficult afternoon, star midfielder Thiago Alcantara limped off the pitch just six minutes into the second half after what appeared to be a relatively mild incident.

This adds to Liverpool’s midfield injury list, which also includes the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones.

The Latest: Coates shares Brozovic news

Coates has shared an update on the Reds’ midfield situation, touting interest in Croatia international Brozovic despite Jurgen Klopp’s apparent reluctance to dip into the transfer market for the rest of the summer.

Taking to Twitter, the Liverpool Echo journalist claimed: “Liverpool are said to be ‘preparing an offer’ to sign one of Serie A’s top midfielders in Marcelo Brozovic #LFC”

The Verdict: Ideal target

When looking at Brozovic’s underlying statistics, the numbers suggest that the 29-year-old would do a fine job in the middle of the park at Anfield in Thiago’s absence.

As per FBRef, compared with positional peers across Europe’s top five leagues over the past year, the Inter Milan midfielder ranks in the 97th percentile for passes attempted and progressive passes, and in the 96th percentile for pass completion, so it’s no wonder he he has been dubbed one of the foremost players in his position in Serie A.

This is comparable to Thiago, who has been deemed one of the best passers in the game, with the 30-year-old ranking in the 98th, 99th and 92nd percentiles respectively for these statistics (via FBRef).

Therefore, if Liverpool are keen on an imminent addition at Kirkby, Brozovic could be a brilliant signing for Klopp’s squad, bringing with him ample experience at Serie A, Champions League and World Cup level.
