Go Ahead Eagles youngster Jay Idzes has revealed that his ‘dream’ is to play for Liverpool at some point during his career.
Idzes has a dream
The 20-year-old Dutch midfielder is currently playing his football in the Dutch second tier after making the move from FC Eindhoven in the summer for £315,000 (via TransferMarkt). Idzes has scored once from his first eight appearances and has already set sights on what he plans to do next, having caught the eye from his first handful of outings.
Jurgen Klopp has always been open to playing youth players in the first team, with Curtis Jones being a key part of the Reds’ cup runs and making his Champions League debut during Wednesday’s 1-0 victory against Ajax.
Like any youngster, Idzes admitted that there was only one place that he wanted to play before his calls time on his career in the future.
“As a kid, I didn’t have to become an astronaut or anything, because it was always soccer, soccer, soccer with me,” he told Voetbal Zone.
“And then I don’t even care what level I have reached. Of course, I dream of Liverpool, but I will have to show how far I can get.”
Hard work starts now
Idzes’ ambition in the game is admirable but making his dream come true while playing in the Keuken Campioen Divisie is not realistic. Ideally, a move to the Eredivisie and to a club that is playing in Europe on a regular basis could make the Anfield scouts stop in their tracks and take notice of his talent.
At this time, the Dutchman has a long way to go and must continue working hard to convince Klopp that he would fit into his team.
With Liverpool having signed Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle last season, it shows that the Merseysiders are interested in players located in that part of the market. Now, Idzes just need to get himself noticed.
