Liverpool are keen on a move for Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Marko Rog

Published Add your comment

Despite the transfer window being closed, rumours are still rife of potential moves in the future. Obviously, all transfer rumours have to be taken with a pinch of salt, but this Liverpool deal appears to be feasible.

The Reds added seven first-team players to their squad over the summer and were linked with a host of other names. One player they were interested in, according to The Sun, was Croatian midfielder, Marko Rog.

The 20-year-old was on Liverpool's radar while he was at Hajduk Split last season. However, the Anfield club decided against making an offer and he moved to Dinamo Zagreb.

But according to The Sun, the Merseyside club are once again interested in a move for the one cap Croatian international, with chief scout Barry Hunter watching him during Zagreb's game against Split.

Rog has made 11 league appearances for Zagreb as they sit top of the Croatian league and came off the bench in their 2-1 Champions League win over Arsenal.

The midfielder is reportedly keen to move to a bigger league in the not too distant future and having spent £4 million on his services in the summer, Zagreb would demand at least double that fee. 


The club from the Croatian capital will hold realistic ambitions of advancing through their Champions League group, that also involves Bayern Munich, after their win against the Gunners.

However, if they fail to advance to the knockout stages, their young midfielder could be departing his homeland in the January window. 


Liverpool have developed a transfer policy of signing young players in recent years so this deal would fit in with their current objectives. 

Despite signing more high-profile Premier League names in the summer, the Reds have often looked for young players that can grow into the first-team since Fenway Sports Group took control.

Joe Gomez has been the most recent success story of Liverpool's transfer plan, but there have also been examples of where it has not paid off - the £20 million spent on Lazar Markovic being a prime example.

Will Liverpool's transfer plan have a benefit on the future of the club? Have your say in the comments section below!
