Liverpool fans are looking up towards the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that they are keen on landing Mario Mandzukic.
The forward looks odds on to leave Atletico Madrid after failing to win over Diego Simeone during his first season there and after having ‘fitness’ issues, the Atleti boss would be willing to look seriously at any offers that come his way for the striker, and given he has spent much of the second half of the season with Fernando Torres as his lone forward, we think a sale could be easier than Liverpool first thought.
The Reds are desperate for a forward who can add some firepower to their line and it seems they’ve finally found their man with Mandzukic, who is willing to move, available and a top forward if he has a manager who can get the best out of him and a system that suits him.
Liverpool fans. Would you be happy if the only summer signing you made in terms of forwards was Mandzukic? Let us know your thoughts below.
