There may only be a few days remaining in the transfer but there are many Premier League clubs who are still keen to make another signing or two.
One of those clubs is Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp refusing to say that he has finished his business despite spending almost £70 million this summer.
And now, according to the Sunday People, they are in pole position to sign Croatian wonderkid Ante Coric.
The 19-year-old had been linked with a move to Anfield earlier this summer but it appeared that those reports were unfounded after Liverpool didn’t make an official move for the midfielder.
But, in recent weeks, it seemed as though Coric was heading to England after all. The Dinamo Zagreb midfielder was set to join Manchester City after Pep Guardiola saw a £15 million bid for him accepted.
However, after the attacking midfielder discovered that the Citizens were planning on sending him immediately out for a season-long loan, Coric pulled the plug on the deal.
The report claims that Coric feared that he would be “stockpiled” at the Etihad Stadium and would struggle to play first-team football under Guardiola.
While Liverpool are favourites to sign the highly-rated youngster, they face competition from Tottenham for his signature.
After Zagreb accepted a £15m bid from City, it’s believed that is the amount that the Croatian club are holding out for this summer. However, it's reported that both Liverpool and Spurs would rather pay closer to £12m.
Whether Klopp or Mauricio Pochettino will make the move before the end of the window remains to be seen.
