Jorg Schmadtke now wants 22-year-old Bundesliga defender at Liverpool

Jorg Schmadtke has reportedly identified VfL Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven as a potential target for Liverpool.

According to iNews, the 22-year-old Dutchman could soon appear on the Reds’ radar once Schmadtke is announced as Liverpool’s new sporting director, with Van de Ven one of the breakout stars of the Bundesliga this season and a talent that is being eyed by some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

With Schmadtke well aware of Van de Ven’s qualities, it makes sense why the German transfer official wants to bring the Wolfsburg talent to Liverpool, with the former Volendam star being noted by Football Talent Scout as the defender with the quickest sprint in the Bundesliga this season at 35.87 KMH.

With Liverpool in the market for a defender, the 22-year-old Bundesliga star could be an ideal option for Jurgen Klopp’s side. Moreover, Wolfsburg demands could allow the Reds to still fill their three central midfield quota that has been brandished about this summer.

Indeed, Van de Ven has been one of the breakout names in Europe as a whole this season. And with Liverpool in the market for a defender this summer, Schmadtke’s recommendation could hit the mark and then some in the years to come.

Van de Ven’s rise from the Dutch second-tier to the Bundesliga is no fluke. And with Premier League clubs now interested in the 22-year-old, Liverpool now have the chance to pounce for the Wolfsburg youngster in what could be a fantastic move.

As we know, Schmadtke’s influence could play a key role in Liverpool landing the Holland youth international, and for Liverpool, the defensive prospect could be a fine addition to their back line and an ideal long-term replacement for a certain Virgil van Dijk.
