If this story feels like a bit of deja vu to our dear readers, I apologize. It often feels that way for us too at TLO Towers. Indeed, almost a year ago to the day I wrote about Liverpool’s supposed interest in Croatian midfielder Ante Coric.
Of course, Coric never came, but a year on he is once again tentatively linked to Liverpool. Because you know why. The 20-year-old plies his trade with Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb, is under contract until 2022, and doesn’t seem that fussed about leaving.
"I am happy such big clubs want me, but I want to play with my favourite team in the Champions League," Coric said in a recent interview.
"It was up to me to decide, all I needed to do was a medical, but I want to stay at Dinamo, where I can give a lot more."
Looks like there’s not much to see here. But rumour mongers are going to rumour monger, and with Liverpool in Australia it’s a slow news day, so here we are.
