Jeremiah St. Juste has admitted that he has had an approach from a Premier League club amid reports that Liverpool are interested in signing the Sporting Lisbon defender.
Speaking to Voetbalzone, the 26-year-old centre-back has revealed that an English side made contact with him over a potential move this summer after his performance against Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League, with St. Juste impressing against the Gunners.
Record recently reported that Liverpool were interested in signing St. Juste, and news of an approach from a Premier League club now hints that a summer move might be on the cards for the former Mainz 05 star, with the Reds keen to sign a centre-back in the window.
With a release clause of £40m, a deal could be made by Liverpool to sign St. Juste at a reasonable price, and according to the player himself, contact with a Premier League club has happened in recent weeks after a starring performance against Arsenal.
St. Juste said: “You see how quickly things can change. After the game against Arsenal, there was interest from the a Premier League team. It is up to me to continue this form and show the national team coach that I want it to be involved. In the end, of course, the choice is up to him.”
Liverpool could do better than St. Juste this summer
St. Juste is no doubt a good defender, who this season has been one of Sporting’s best player in what could become a year to remember for the Portuguese giants, yet for Liverpool, the Reds could do better than the 26-year-old Dutchman.
At £40m, Liverpool’s scouting team can easily find a more suitable defensive signing for the squad next season, with a younger option who could pair Ibrahima Konate ideally what Jurgen Klopp’s side should be looking to bring in during the transfer window.
