Liverpool will reportedly make an improved second bid for Besiktas and Croatia centre-back Domagoj Vida, having seen their first approach rejected.

Liverpool are reportedly ready to submit an improved offer for Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida.

Vida has established himself as one of the most solid centre-backs at this summer's World Cup, helping Croatia to a shock appearance in the final of the tournament alongside current Liverpool player Dejan Lovren.

The Reds are understood to have already seen a £15.9m bid for the defender knocked back, but Fanatik reports that they are now willing to increase that offer.

Liverpool are expected to return with a bid of around £17.7m, although that figure is still thought to be some way below Besiktas's valuation of the player.

The Turkish outfit are reportedly holding out for a fee of £30m, having seen the 29-year-old make it all the way to the World Cup final.

Vida only joined Besiktas on a free transfer from Dynamo Kiev in January, but Besiktas are willing to move the defender on if they receive a suitable offer.
