Croatian defender Josko Gvardiol has make known his Liverpool ambitions.

The 19-year-old left-back featured for his country as they wrapped up a 3-1 win against Scotland, securing second place in Euro 2020 Group D.

Having started playing football aged seven, the defender learned his trade from dad Tihomir – a former amateur player for hometown side Novigrad, reports the Daily Star.

And he was taken to the capital city Zagreb where Tresnjevka took him on as a youth player.

After just a year, he had attracted the attention of three Croatian First Football League sides in Lokomotiva, NK Zagreb and champions Dinamo Zagreb.

Leeds made an offer of £18.8m for the then-18-year-old in 2020.

Refusing to stay for development at Zagreb, he was offered a better deal by RB Leipzig, offering £13.7m while allowing him to stay in Croatia.

Adding 40 appearances and three goals to his tally, he did have to miss their biggest game of the season – the 3-2 Europa League comeback against Tottenham – due to injury.

Speaking to 24 Sata, the 19-year-old said: “From a young age, I watched Liverpool games with my dad and I grew up with just them.

“When I took football more seriously, I started following them, and I definitely want the Premier League and Liverpool move one day.”
