Mateo Kovacic insists he is happy at Inter, despite reports Liverpool are keen to take him to the Premier League.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Croatia international during the close-season as Brendan Rodgers looks to improve his attacking options.

But Kovacic told Corriere dello Sport: "At Inter I'm happy as I am at home.

"That's why I don't like it when people talk of the transfer market, of teams that are after me, of negotiations and other things of this kind.

"I'm happy and I want to stay here."

And the 21-year-old believes Inter can bounce back from their disappointing display in Serie A last season, and get back to lifting silverware under Roberto Mancini.

Kovacic added: "Our objective must be that of coming among the top three, to bring Inter back into the Champions League. Then we'll see what happens.

"My hope is of winning a trophy with Inter."
