Napoli are the new Spurs! (Or the new Chelsea, or the new Borussia Dortmund… )
This is because as soon as Liverpool are linked with a player in the press, they are too in the following days, it seems.
First it was Mexican midfielder Hector Herrera, who looks set to a move from Porto to southern Italy has previously been touted as a Jurgen Klopp target (via the Mirror).
Secondly, Napoli decided to battle us for Piotr Zielinski, and the Polish midfielder is still deciding between the two clubs, reports the Independent…
We’re actually not too fussed of the Italians complete deals for Herrera and Zielinski – but would be pretty gutted if they nipped in and secured Coric.
The teenager is immensely talented and although we’re sell set in terms of playmakers, the chance to sign a player with his other worldly potential shouldn’t be missed.
The fact he has liked multiple ‘Coric to Liverpool’ Instagram posts though shows he’s perhaps more keen on a Merseyside switch.
