Report – Signing £62million star could be Liverpool’s next triumph

Liverpool, as European Champions, should be able to attract the best of players in the world and a top class star is linked with the Anfield club.

According to Bild, on Saturday, Klopp won the biggest trophy of his career and the next trophy could soon follow in the form of a top signing.

New Deal – Liverpool ready to agree terms worth £40million with Klopp

The renowned German outlet have stated that signing Dutch international Matthijs de Ligt could be Klopp’s next triumph.

Stats and price tag:

The 19-year-old defender is one of the hottest properties in the transfer market right now. As per recent reports (Sport), the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United are battling to lure the Eredivisie star, who is valued at 70 million euros (£62million).

The teenage starlet won the Johan Cruyff Trophy in 2018 and this term, he captained the Ajax side that won the league and cup double in the Netherlands.

The 6 ft 2 center half not only proved his worth in the defensive third but also contributed in the attack. In all competitions, he directly contributed in 11 goals (7 goals and 4 assists) for the Dutch giants (Transfermarkt).

He scored the decisive goal to knock Italian champions Juventus out of the Champions League and also found the net vs Spurs in the second leg of the semi final. However, the PL club made an astonishing comeback to qualify for the final.

Liverpool’s central defense:

Liverpool broke their transfer record to sign Virgil van Dijk for a fee of £75million (The Guardian) back in January 2018.

The Reds had the best defensive record in the recently concluded PL campaign and the Dutch international deservedly won the PFA Player of the Year award. More importantly, he helped us win the club’s sixth European Cup and was awarded the MOTM prize in the final.

At the start of the season, Klopp mainly preferred Gomez to partner Van Dijk in the central defense. However, injury ruined Gomez’s season and in his absence, Matip established his position in the starting XI.

We also have Dejan Lovren, but the Croatian international was mainly a bench warmer, who started 11 times in the Premier League and only twice in the Champions League. So, we do have quality and depth in the central defense.

For Netherlands, Van Dijk and De Ligt start in the central defense. In your opinion, should Klopp move to unite the duo at Anfield?

    I think de ligt would be good in some respects and bad in others, he will certainly sell shirts and likely form a formidable partnership with fellow dutchman virgil as he is already top quality at 18, that said I feel that if Gomez is not going to be injury prone that he will be even better than de ligt, but we dont know that he can stay injury free so it’s a hard one, but sign him.

    If we are to Buy another CB De Ligt would without doubt be the way to go due to his ability and mainly his age. If Gomez could be injury Free we wouldn’t need to go after De Ligt but his partnership with fellow International Team mate VVD would be great but you know he will only come if he’s a starter which means Matip who’s been fantastic drops to 2nd or 3rd pick behind Gomez if fit and Lovren could be Sold while he still has Value !! Who ever Klopp wants to bring in should be given the green light to join our Revoloution !! YNWA

    Honestly De Ligt would be a great addition to the defence but last season we lost the Premier League due to too many draws not losses so for mine I would think the money better spent on an attacking midfielder of quality or a striker of quality
    Or failing that given the money won let’s them all knock city of there perch.

    we dont need 5 CBs , i think klop should sell either Matip or Lovren but matip is a liability at times so my money is on him , who ever stays will be third in the packing order behind Gomes coz if de ligt comes, he will be a starter alongside VVD ofcoz… as for Gomes , he will be immediate backup to any of the starting pair and also backup TAA on the RB …but knowing Klop , even if oth matip and lovren stays , they will surely get game time coz some games requires physicality and experience which de ligt lacks
