According to a report from SportBILD, Mario Vuskovic is increasingly becoming one of the most sought-after players in the second division of German football. The youngster has attracted the attention of scouts across Europe, with Liverpool among the clubs keeping close tabs on his progress. Formerly of Hajduk Split, Vuskovic had been a part of the Hamburger SV setup since last summer, when he joined the club on loan. The youngster made a solid impression in his first season in Germany, racking up almost 2,000 minutes of league football, and helping HSV reach the promotion playoff.

A centre-back by trade, Vuskovic has impressed the onlookers with his athleticism and a dogged defensive mentality. His imposing 1.89m frame also makes him an intimidating presence for any opposing attackers, thus making him a top target for several clubs across Europe. Liverpool, for one, are closely monitoring the development of the 20-year-old, who could prove to be an interesting long-term prospect for Jurgen Klopp. The German tactician had to part ways with several players this month, including Ben Davies, who has joined Rangers on a permanent deal.

Davies’ exit has created a small void in Liverpool’s backline. Although the Reds have capable alternatives for the first-choice defensive duo of Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, Klopp might have preferred a bit more depth as Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate have a chequered past when it comes to injuries.
That is where the addition of a young prospect like Mario Vuskovic could prove to be crucial. The 20-year-old has limitless potential and has shown he has what it takes to thrive at the highest level of football. Jamie Carragher has urged his former side to snap up the young player before another club lure him away from the German outfit.
