Croatia’s improbable run at the FIFA World Cup in Russia hasn’t gone unnoticed.
For the first time in two decades, the Blazers made it to the quarter-final with some incredibly attractive football on display.
While the likes of Luca Modric and Ivan Rakitic stealing all of the plaudits in the final third, Domagoj Vida has been the man keeping things tight at the back.
Liverpool had reportedly been enchanted by the 29-year-old and are said to be weighing up bringing him to Anfield.
Vida plays from the right-side of defense and usually storms forward to contribute to the attack, however Royal Panda sports betting is offering good odds in the betting market that the Reds land the defender this summer.
Due to his incredible calmness and artistry, Croatia conceded just twice in the competition.
Now the Daily Star is quoting Turkish sources that the Reds have joined Everton in the race to sway the Croat from Besiktas.
Jurgen Klopp is in dire need of defensive reinforcements having already strengthened the midfield with Fabinho and Naby Keita from Monaco and RB Leipzig respectively.
The same reports claim Liverpool’s Merseyside neighbours had a bid of around £12m rejected and should the Reds manage to double that figure, then they may just strike gold.
Vida will provide competition for English duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Nathaniel Clyne should a move to Anfield materialise.
