Persib Bandung in negotiation to sign Croatian footballer Mirko Livaja

Indonesian Liga 1 outfit Persib Bandung is reportedly in the negotiation process to sigh Croatian midfielder Mirko Livaja.

The club is hoping to sign Livaja before the transfer window ends in late February.

“He’s just 22 years old and he’ll come to Indonesia this week,” Persib Bangdung manager Djadjang Nurdjaman said in a recent interview, which was published on the club’s official website.

According to Nurdjaman, the Croatian footballer will go on a trial with the club. After that, he could sign a long-term contract with them.

Livaja, who had a short stint with HNK Sibenik recently, has been recommended to Persib Bangdung by Inter Milan’s coaching staff.

He is the younger brother of Marko Livaja, who is currently plying his trade at Spanish club Las Palmas.
