Liverpool have reportedly made a €15m bid for Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Ante Coric, reports Croatian outlet tportal, and has liked a number of pictures on Instagram linking him to the club.
We’ve heard much about Coric, and how highly he’s rated in his homeland, but bar a few Champions League appearances, haven’t watched him for a full 90 before.
So naturally, like all good scouts, we took to YouTube to find Coric’s best bits. Obviously, every player can look good in a highlights clip, but what’s important here is to study the teenager’s style and attributes – rather than laud one good cross or long-shot.
Coric has a low centre of gravity, bursts from standing into speed, has immense close control and clearly possesses vision. Watching him here genuinely reminded us of Coutinho – and we’ve decided we’d quite like seeing them in the same lineup!
