Liverpool recently signed Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho from Inter, and according to reports in Italy today, and during negotiations with Inter Sporting Director Marco Branca, the Reds also discussed the possibility of signing the Slovenian International in the summer. TMW reports:
"Liverpool have initially offered £12m, but Inter believe that Liverpool would also be willing to make an extra effort to get up very close to the equivalent of €20 million, which could persuade Massimo Moratti to sell"
28-year old Handanovic spent eight years at Udinese before signing for Inter last summer in an €11m deal, so I can't see Inter getting anywhere close to €20m for him.
Zeljko Brkic, the goalkeeper who replaced Handanovic at Udinese, believes that his predecessor is one of the best goalkeepers out there. In January, he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.:
"We often speak, not just about football. I still see him at the top, as in the days of Udine. He remains one of the three best goalkeepers in Europe."
In recent months, a whole raft of goalkeepers have been linked with a move to Anfield, including: Asmir Begovic, Ali AL Habsi, Jason Steel, Mark Andre ter Stegen and Ron Robert Zieler. Is Handanovic a better option...?
