Liverpool are keeping tabs on Mateo Kovacic’s situation at Chelsea, according to reports in the English media.
The Croatian international is closing in on the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge and he could be made available for a reasonable fee at the end of the season.
With the Reds needing to revamp their midfield options this summer, Kovacic could well be a cost-effective solution, and many fans on Twitter would back a move for the player:

Am I the only one who would rather have him over mount

Been calling for this one for a while. We should 100% test their resolve. £20m for him I think would be good business. Gives me Gini vibes.

This is a very interesting link, depending on how true. Have always appreciated his talents and ready made for The Reds.

Kovacic is not only attracting interest from Liverpool, it has been suggested that Manchester City would be keen on snapping up the midfielder as well.
Like with Mason Mount, though, a lot will depend on whether Chelsea are willing to sell one of their players to a Premier League rival. The Blues are unlikely to allow the pair to leave on a free transfer when their contracts expire next year so it is certainly something to keep an eye on.
