Danny Mills has urged Liverpool to sign the “fabulous” Marcelo Brozovic this summer but insisted there is an element of risk in a potential deal.
The former Manchester City full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, stressed the importance of adding quality to the squad despite appearing destined to win the Premier League title this season.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 27-year-old’s representatives have been contacted over a potential £52million move this summer.
Brozovic has been a key figure for both club and country since arriving at the San Siro from Dinamo Zagreb in 2016.
The central midfielder has made 32 appearances this campaign as Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan battle it out for the Serie A title alongside Lazio and Juventus.
When asked by Football Insider if the Croatia international would be a good addition at Anfield, Mills said: “He is a very good player. Fabulous technical ability.
“We have seen him play in World Cups and Euros and play very well.
“He is a fabulous talent but any transfer is a gamble especially when you are moving countries and moving leagues. You do not know how he will settle in.
“Often, it can take a while for that to happen. There will be big pressures if Liverpool are champions, which we fully expect to happen.
“They have to sign quality and put pressure on that first eleven. If the current squad are not going to raise their standards you need to bring in better.”
The Reds are currently 25 points clear of second-placed Manchester City and appear nailed on to end a thirty-year wait on Merseyside for a top-flight title.
The Premier League and Serie A are currently suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic with the UK and Italy two of the worst affected countries in Europe.
