Liverpool are believed to have offered a contract to Schalke’s Bosnian left-back Sead Kolašinac according to a report in German publication Bild.
Kolašinac’s contract expires in the summer and he is currently one of the most in demand free agents to become available.
Among the suitors for the Bosnian’s signature are five other clubs, Manchester City, Arsenal, AC Milan, Juventus and Roma meaning Jurgen Klopp will most likely have a fight on his hands to secure the highly sought after defender.
The 23 year old would bring a wealth of experience to the Liverpool defence having already played five seasons for Schalke’s first team.
Kolašinac would most likely slot right into Jurgen Klopp’s back line as midfielder James Milner has been offering cover in that position for the season due to the inadequacies of our left back, Alberto Moreno.
Milner has done a stellar job and has been the ultimate professional after being asked to take up the unfamiliar role.
Competition from the other teams mentioned would make it difficult to secure Kolašinac’s signature but if we secure Champions League football, we would significantly improve our chances of signing him as we would also be able to offer first team football.
Kolašinac is primarily a left back but can also play on the centre of defence as well as on the left side of midfield.
He has made 30 appearances for Schalke this season in all competitions scoring three goals and providing seven assists.
