Domagoj Vida’s runs in Croatia’s World Cup semi-final clash against England has been one of the best highlights for the Blazers.
Sturdy at defence and quick to stop the likes of Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli, the centre back is the crème of the crop and their 2-1 win against England on Wednesday,just raised his value off the roof.
The Besiktas man is currently eyed by Liverpool and according to Turkish media, the Reds want him at the heart of their defence.
Their initial 19 million euro bid for the 29-year-old was reportedly put down by the Turkish outfit who formerly refused to sell him at that meagre amount.
However, they are willing to budge should the Jurgen Klopp’s side up their bid for the centre-back.
Meanwhile, Turkish news outlet Fanatik says Besiktas are not hasty to sell off the player as they are patiently waiting for more suitors to join the queue for his services.
Nonetheless, Liverpool are willing to chase him down and according to Fanatik via Sportwitness, the Reds are ready to up their bid to 20 million euros as Klopp is very convinced he’s a good fit for the Reds at Anfield after his impressive performance at the World Cup.
Vida joined Besiktas on a free seven months ago from Ukraine outfit Dynamo Kiev and is still contracted at the club until 2022.
