Liverpool can sign Manchester City target for €84million – report

Frenkie De Jong

Liverpool target Frenkie de Jong is a highly sought-after talent and reports in the British press indicate that he is available but only if Ajax Amsterdam receive £75million for his services.

With Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum plying their trade at Anfield these days, there is a strong Dutch spine at Liverpool.

With the former recently hinting that Matthijs de Ligt is on the radar of Reds’ scouts, Liverpool supporters have been discussing which Dutch players would suit the Anfield outfit’s style of play.

My personal favourite would be Frenkie de Jong, with the 21-year-old demonstrating superb maturity and intelligence on the ball in recent friendlies for the Netherlands.

Jorginho was a player linked with Liverpool in the summer before Fabinho completed a £43million switch from AS Monaco. The Italian is one of the best dictators of play in world football and Frenkie de Jong has been compared to Maurizio Sarri’s puppet master.

The young Dutchman will command a huge transfer fee when he does eventually move from Ajax as Manchester City, Barcelona and Liverpool all hold an interest. According to the Mirror, any interested party will have to offer £75m (€84m) to sign the 21-year-old.

While it remains to be seen if the Reds would splash that cash to sign de Jong, having van Dijk and Wijnaldum already at the club could be a useful bargaining chip if Michael Edwards is called upon to recruit the Ajax prodigy.

  1. Frenkie de Jong
    Last Summer – VAlued at £40m
    Monday – Mirror – City agree deal for £61m
    Tuesday-Sun -Real Madrid want him and will pay £68m
    Wednesday – Mirror – Ajax name their price and it’s £75m
    Thursday – RTK -Liverpool can sign him for Eu84m
    Thursday – Sun – ………………………..You tell me!

    The only club/s that can sign him are any he actually wants to move to and who offer a feet pitched at what Ajax will accept and I very much doubt they have shared that information with the Sun, Mirror or RTK!

    It’s going to be a long tedious transfer window full of this kind of $h*t.
