Why This Diminutive Real Madrid Star Will Be A Key Figure For Liverpool Next Season If Klopp Signs Him

Mateo Kovacic

When Mateo Kovacic joined Real Madrid, big things were expected from him. The Croatian was compared to Andrea Pirlo and letting him go so easily was a surprise for everyone. But Kovacic’s move to Santiago Bernabeu hasn’t been a successful one so far. The extremely talented midfielder did not get proper game time last season. Substitute appearances have been rare too and he had not signed just to warm the benches. With the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and James Rodriguez already in Madrid’s squad, Kovacic is not going to get many chances next season too. So a move away from Madrid will surely benefit him.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with the young Croatian midfielder for the last few days. Jurgen Klopp is keen to strengthen his attacking options this summer and Kovacic is a very good choice. Bringing Kovacic to Anfield will be beneficial for both, the player and the club.

Kovacic is an exciting talent and has all the ingredients of becoming a world class midfielder. Jurgen Klopp values hard work and skill and Kovacic will be worked to the bone as this will bring the best out of the midfielder. Kovacic has been compared to Andrea Pirlo. So the player surely must have something in him. Kovacic’s style of play includes playing short passes and holding onto the ball. His passing game will help him adjust at Liverpool as Coutinho and Firmino also play a similar sort of game. He dribbles well and plays quick and key passes which create goal scoring opportunities.

Signing Kovacic will bring creativity at the centre of the pitch for Liverpool which was lacking last season. It will also reduce the burden on Philippe Coutinho’s shoulders of bringing creativity to Liverpool’s game. Kovacic is perfect for Liverpool and at a young age of 22, he has a very good chance of development under Jurgen Klopp. The German manager can bring the best out of any player and Adam Lallana is an example of that. At Liverpool, Kovacic will be played regularly, something that he missed at real Madrid. He will be a very key figure in Liverpool’s central midfield next season. Liverpool have competition from AS Roma with reports suggesting that the Serie A outfit had agreed for a loan deal. But Jurgen Klopp is willing to spend around 30 million euros on the Croatian midfielder and he is surely worth it.
