Liverpool starlet deal on as Man City ace targeted

Inter Milan are ready to sell Mateo Kovacic to Liverpool in a £22m deal to fund a swoop for Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, according to reports from The Express.

The 20-year-old playmaker has emerged as a target for the Reds in recent times, with the Merseysiders eyeing a summer deal.

Kovacic only signed a new contract with Inter in January, but the Serie A giants are believed to be looking to cash in as they target a deal for Toure.

And with Kovacic valued at £22m, a deal to offload him to Liverpool to fund a raid for Toure is seen as the best option all round.
