Croatian international Mateo Kovacic will join Liverpool for £22m in May, according to reports in Italy today.

The Austrian born attacking midfielder has also been attracting interest from Arsenal, but reports in Italy suggest cash-strapped Inter are desperate to sell and the Reds have agreed to meet their asking price.

Kovacic, who turns 21 in May and has already racked up 19 caps for Croatia, joined the Serie A club in a deal worth around £11m back in January 2013.

Earlier today, we brought you reports that Brendan Rodgers is planning to rejuvenate his attacking options this summer by offloading a trio of first team stars.
