£20 million striker Liverpool bound ‘as he prepares to leave’ giants

Liverpool are ready to sign Mario Mandzukic this summer as he prepares to leave Atletico Madrid, according to the Metro website.

Mandzukic only moved to Atletico at the end of last season and has been a hit on the pitch, scoring 20 goals.

However, he and boss Diego Simeone have reportedly fallen out in recent weeks, and talk of a transfer to the Premier League has been stepped up.

And Liverpool, who are seeking to add a world class striker to their ranks, are very keen on trying to tempt him to Merseyside.

Mandzukic is one of Brendan Rodgers’ favourite players and Liverpool expect to fund a deal by selling Mario Balotelli.
