Kovacic featured as a deep-lying playmaker last season, much like Gerrard did, but has also been known to play further forward.

The 21-year-old is very similar to the former England international, with great passing ability and able to contribute defensively.

Rodgers will have to fight off Bayern Munich if he wants the youngster though, according to Eurosport.
