Roma slap £37m price-tag on Liverpool midfield target

Liverpool will need to make a bid in the region of £37million if they are to sign Miralem Pjanic from Roma, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 24-year-old was linked with a move to Anfield after it was reported that Brendan Rodgers travelled to Rome in order to personally scout the midfield man.

Pjanic is now being seen as a potential replacement for Steven Gerrard, who is set to join LA Galaxy at the end of the season following 28 years with the Reds.

However, signing the Bosnian star will not come cheap, as it has been tipped that Rodgers may need to break the club transfer record in order to lure him to the Premier League.

He is currently valued at £37million and upon his potential switch to the club, he is also said to be demanding wages of around £160,000-a-week, a number that would make him the highest paid player in the squad.

In addition, the Reds boss is also considering moves for his team-mates, Radja Nainggolan and Adem Ljajic.
