Liverpool set to battle it out with EPL rivals for 25-year-old star

According to Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are both keen on SS Lazio right-back Adam Marusic ahead of the summer transfer window.

Adam had a fairly restrained opening to his career, starting out with Teleoptik and Vozdovac in the home country, before heading to Belgium with Kortrijk and Oostende.

Having made an impression with his goalscoring ability from the right side, netting 15 goals in 106 league appearances in Belgium, SS Lazio swooped to sign the Montenegrin international, and he has played an important part this season.

Appearing as a right wing back in Simone Inzaghi’s team, Marusic has made 33 games in all competitions this campaign, netting three goals and providing six assists whilst continuing to be fairly unheralded in a squad containing bigger names such as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Stefan de Vrij and Ciro Immobile.

After all, Adam Marusic does appear to have caught the eye with his performances, as Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport now report that both Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool – as well as Italian giants Inter Milan – are keen to land him this summer.
