Liverpool submit £25m bid for Atlético Madrid defender

Liverpool have submitted a £25m bid for Atletico Madrid full back Sime Vrsaljko.

This is the claim made by well placed Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, who says that the Reds have made a €28m bid for the Croatian defender during his short time in the Spanish capital.


Vrsaljko has made only 20 appearances for Los Rojiblancos, but his performances have attracted attention from a number of European clubs.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has admitted that despite the 25-year-old being a ‘big player’ for the club, he could be sold:

“Sime is a big player and all big players have a value.

“We are happy when other clubs look at our players, this is normal and it is positive for us.

“The truth is Sime has been injured and when he has played for us he has done very well, but it is a fact that Juanfran has done superbly also.”
