Liverpool Offer £15.9m For World Cup Star But Will Have To Increase Bid To £30.9m For Dejan Lovren’s Teammate

Besiktas star Domagoj Vida has been making quite a name for himself at the World Cup.

Vida scored in the quarter-final victory over Russia in extra-time before also netting his penalty in the shootout.

Croatia ended up making it through the semi-finals where they will face England next.

The Fanatik sports newspaper report that Liverpool have made a £15.9m [€18m] offer for the 29-year-old.

Per the source, Besiktas are demanding £30.9m [€35m] for their star man.

Vida is the defensive partner of Reds centre-back Dejan Lovren for Croatia.

The report also claims that Everton, West Ham and Fulham are also in the race for the defender.

Besiktas signed Vida on a free transfer back from Dynamo Kiev back in January and he does have another four-years remaining on his contract.

The Black Eagles will however, consider offers for Vida once the World Cup is over. The club are still under Financial Fair Play pressure.
