Liverpool are reportedly preparing an £8m move for Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic after his agent claimed that he has become unsettled at the club, according to the Metro.

The 19-year-old has established himself as a key player for the Italian side since joining them from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb in 2013, and has gone on to showcase himself as one of Europe’s brightest talents in the process.
However, despite his bright displays he has found himself out of the squad in recent weeks as rumours of a fall out with coach Walter Mazzarri abound, and now he appears to be set for a summer exit from the San Siro.
Kovacic’s agent refused to confirm the talk this week, but he has revealed his client is unhappy, telling reporters: “Everybody is confused as to why Mateo is not playing.
“Is there a row with Mazzarri I can’t say a lot, but he is not happy.”
The news has prompted Brendan Rodgers to sit up and take notice, though, as he views the young pass master as an ideal addition to his own midfield and will weigh up an £8m move at the end of the season.
It’s thought that the Reds plan to make the offer before the World Cup, in a bid to get Kovacic’s future sorted before he turns out for Croatia at the tournament.
