Croatia left-back Joško Gvardiol has claimed he always supported Liverpool as a youngster and would one day love an Anfield transfer.
The 19-year-old already has a cap for his national team, and spent last season on loan at Dinamo Zagreb from Rb Leipzig – a team Liverpool love doing business with – having previously bought Naby Keita and Ibrahima Konate – and nearly Timo Werner, as well.
“From a young age, I watched Liverpool games with my dad and I grew up with just them,” Gvardiol told 24hr Sata.
“When I took football more seriously, I started following them, and I definitely want the Premier League and Liverpool move one day.”
There is no suggested interest as of yet, so this is something Gvardiol is one day hoping for – as we imagine many footballers on the continent are also – but the quotes will certainly make us follow his progress more closely.
At left-back, we have Andy Robertson, in our opinion the world’s best in the position, but also last summer’s signing Kostas Tsimikas, who has not yet found his feet…
We hope during pre-season this time around he can get up to scratch with Jurgen Klopp’s tactical demands and provide genuine backup to the Scot – as in 2020/21 – Tsimikas played just five minutes of Premier League football.
