Jurgen Klopp wants to bolster his midfield options during the summer transfer window
Liverpool are chasing Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric but face competition to sign the Croatian international according to reports in Spain.
Diario Gol claims that Modric has stated he wants to move back to the Premier League and the Reds are interested in a summer move for the 32-year-old as Jurgen Klopp looks to reinforce his midfield but with Arsenal also interested they could be disappointed by the former Tottenham player’s preference to return to London.
Despite the obvious controversies of crossing the divide to Spurs’ great rivals - following the likes of Pat Jennings and Sol Campbell who both moved directly between the two - Modric is believed to favour a switch to the capital as he loved living there so much during his previous spell in England.
For all diminutive playmaker Modric’s obvious qualities, it would be intriguing to see just where a physically slight player in the autumn years of his career would fit into the Anfield engine room - especially given that Liverpool have already agreed a summer move for RB Leipzig’s all-action Guinea international midfielder Naby Keita report the Liverpool Echo .
The problems Roberto Firmino is giving Liverpool FC
The Reds could lose Emre Can whose current contract is set to expire this summer but with the likes of captain Jordan Henderson , Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain , Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Adam Lallana they’re not short of options in the centre of the park.
