Liverpool have set the Premier League alight so far this campaign.
The Reds are breaking records left, right and centre – they have a 22-point lead at the top of the table, for example, which is the biggest such margin in the history of England’s top flight – and they are still unbeaten in the division so far this term.
However, with the league all but sewn up, the Reds will have to defend their inevitable title next season, and that could lead to some new signings arriving at Anfield to boost Jurgen Klopp’s squad. One of those who is said to be of interest is Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic. As per fcinternews.it, the Reds have scouted the 27-year-old, who has a €60m (£50m) release clause for clubs outside of Italy.
The fans have been reacting to this news, but it seems that they aren’t really behind the idea. Many believe it won’t happen.
No. Not happening

No, sign Sandro Tonali

Tonali is another player plying his trade in Serie A. A midfielder who plays for Brescia, he has been linked with a move to Merseyside (Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness).
Others believe that his age will stop a deal happening.
Not happening, 27 years old not our style unless he comes on a free transfer.

£51 million for a 27 year old. I don’t see us making that signing

Too old. Liverpool wouldn’t pay that for his age.

27? No way

Indeed, considering the Reds’ have signed Sepp van den Berg, Harvey Elliott and Takumi Minamino in the last three transfer windows – who are aged 18, 16 and 25 respectively – it would be a move that does not fit in with their apparent current transfer policy.
Others, meanwhile, don’t think they need him.
A holding midfielder that we don’t need
