Liverpool are preparing swap deal for Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic

According to Calciomercato Web (h/t Liverpool Echo), Liverpool are preparing a swap deal for Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic with Naby Keita set to be offered in a swap deal.

This comes after arguably Keita’s most impressive display of this season midweek in the FA Cup clash against Wolves. He was very good that day alongside Stefan Bajetic with the Spanish youngster also impressive.

Keita is in the final months of his Liverpool contract. Liverpool are ready to ship him out and are willing to offer the player plus cash to Inter Milan to try and sign the talented Croatian Marcelo Brozovic.

Keita’s time at Liverpool has been very mixed. Coming to Anfield as a talented midfielder injuries have really not allowed him to become the player that he could have and was expected to be when first signed.

However, that is not to say that Keita does not have potential. However, his performances have been rather inconsistent. A fresh start might just be what the Liverpool midfield ace needs to resurrect his career.

Brozovic, on the other hand, is a world-class holding midfielder who has maintained a strong fitness record as compared to Keita. A part of the triumvirate in the national team alongside Mateo Kovacic and Luka Modric, the Inter Milan man is class personified in his role.

However, with him, Liverpool could yet again face the same issues that they faced with Keita. Brozovic has a history of being injury prone and the last thing we want is to sign another player for the sidelines.

The form of Fabinho has been a huge concern for the Reds. Thus, signing someone for the holding midfield role makes sense and Brozovic makes a lot of sense for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.
