Inter Milan have rejected an offer for Mateo Kovacic from Liverpool - which included Mario Balotelli as a makeweight in the deal.

Brendan Rogers is hot on the heels of the Croatian after it was reported he could be available this summer. However, while Inter want around £22m for the 21-year-old, Liverpool value the midfielder at closer to £15m.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Liverpool offered Balotelli as part of the deal to make up the difference, but it appears that Inter are only interested in a straight cash deal.
