Reports today claim that Liverpool and Tottenham will go head-to-head for the signature of £15million-rated Dinamo Zagreb ace Ante Ćorić during the January transfer window.
Liverpool were close to signing the 19-year-old attacking midfielder in the summer but nothing materialised. Personal terms with the Reds had been agreed but he pulled out of a medical opting instead to remain with his current club to help their European campaign.
Asked about Liverpool’s interest at the time, he said: “I am happy such big clubs want me but I want to play with my favourite team in the Champions League.
“It was up to me to decide, all I needed to do was a medical, but I want to stay at Dinamo, where I can give a lot more.”
The latest suggestions are that Dinamo Zagreb are willing to make him available for transfer during the January transfer window and that both Liverpool and Spurs will table offers to try and land him.
Manchester City also tried to sign him in the summer so they may get involved if he does become available.
