He joined RB Leipzig last summer from Dinamo Zagreb but remained on-loan with his hometown club and helped knock Harry Kane and Tottenham out of the Europa League in March.

Leeds United were keen on bringing the versatile ace, who can play either centre-half or left-back, to the Prem a year ago.

But it is another English club he is desperate to play for.

Gvardiol is hoping to earn his second international cap in his nation’s Euro 2020 opener on Sunday.

And he wants to catch the eye of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool while taming the Three Lions.

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

And he admits that one of his heroes is already at Anfield – Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk.

Gvardiol, who has made 52 appearances for Dinamo and helped them to two domestic titles and a Croatian Cup, added: “As a child, I adored Messi.

“I couldn't believe what he was doing on the ball.

“Later, when I found myself in the position of stopper, it was Ramos and van Dijk.”
