Liverpool have agreed personal terms with Inter Milan youngster Mateo Kovacic, according to the Daily Star.

The Croatian midfielder has emerged as one of Brendan Rodgers' top transfer targets after a season in which he has secured his place in Inter's first-team.

The Merseyside club must now agree on a transfer fee with the Serie A side before Kovacic joins up with the likes of Philipe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson for pre-season. 

Liverpool are understood to have made a £15.2m offer but Inter are holding out for £18m.
