You Need To Pay More To get Get Damagoj Vida — Besiktas Told Liverpool
It was reported last week that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed his desire to sign Croatia centre-back Damagoj Vida this summer as he finds a classy defender to partner Virgil Van Dijk next summer.
The Croatian star caught Klopp’s eyes via his world cup showings where he prevented top strikers — including Lionel Messi — from scoring. His partnership with Lovren at the heart of the defense throughout the tournament was awesome and that has wowed lots of managers especially the German tactician.
According to reports across all transfer media, the Reds have tabled a £19m deal to Besiktas for his signature but the Turkish League giants believe it wasn’t suitable for the player considering his status as a world cup’s silver winner.
The latest reports emanating from Anfield claimed the Reds delegation could fly to Turkey for a serious discussions with Besiktas’ hierarchy for the 29-year-old signature.
However, L’Equipe – a French media publication — reveals that the Turkish giants are not going to listen to any offer below £30m.
They also suggest that the Reds might meet the asking price in coming days as they won’t risk losing him to Arsenal, who are also interested in luring him to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
