Report: Juventus Offers Milos Krasic to Liverpool, Serbian Winger Is Available For £12 millionSerbian winger Milos Krasic has been offered to Liverpool by Italian club Juventus. The Serie A leader is looking to offload Krasic, and approached the Reds about a potential January transfer, according to the Daily Mirror.

“Juventus have told the Reds they can have Krasic for the £12 million ($18.7 million) they paid CSKA Moscow for him in 2010,” the report says. “Liverpool are not interested in paying that much for Krasic, but they may consider taking him on loan.”

First-year Juventus manager Antonio Conte has rejuvenated the storied club, but has found little use for Krasic in his current system. He has appeared in seven Serie A games this season, starting just four.

The right-sided winger has an abundance of speed and dribbling ability as he showed in his debut season for Juventus. He scored seven goals and added eight assists in 33 Serie A games in 2010-11.

The 27-year-old has time to regain his form and confidence. A move to Anfield could help him do just that, but the Italian club’s asking price could be a stumbling block.
