Nottingham Forest are thought to be seriously interested in signing Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic.
The Lowdown: Livakovic profiled
The Croatia international impressed at last year’s World Cup in his country’s run to the semi-finals and was dubbed a “hero” by Sacha Pisani as a result. Pete O’Rourke also described his displays in Qatar as ‘outstanding’, and it looks as if he is of interest to City Ground officials as he enters the final 18 months of his Zagreb deal.
The Latest: Forest keen
They claimed that Forest are seriously interested in a deal for the goalkeeper worth around €7-8m. However, the report adds that Zagreb are ‘determined’ to get at least €10m.
The Verdict: Makes sense?
However, he is set to be out through injury for four to five weeks and is only on loan from Manchester United until the end of the season, so looking at a move for Livakovic could be a smart move in the long run, especially following his fine displays on the biggest stage.
Livakovic also shares the same agent as Henderson and Moussa Niakhate, so if a fee can be agreed upon, sorting the finer details of a possible transfer could be relatively simple due to the club’s recent relationship with the CAA Stellar agency.
