Liverpool: Reds interested in signing Frenkie de Jong

Liverpool: Reds interested in signing Frenkie de Jong - Liverpool News

Liverpool are interested in making a move for gifted Netherlands and Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, according to a new transfer rumour.

The Lowdown: De Jong on Netherlands duty

The 25-year-old is currently at the 2022 World Cup with Holland, starting in the middle of the park in their 2-0 victory over Senegal earlier this week.

De Jong highlighted his technical ability with an inch-perfect assist for Cody Gakpo, whipping in a cross that the attacker headed home to open the scoring.

The midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League numerous times recently, with Manchester United in the mix, but it looks as though Liverpool could be ready to battle them.

The Latest: Liverpool keen on signing

According to a report from Spain, the Reds are in the race to acquire De Jong’s signature, with his future at Barca not necessarily secure.

Liverpool reportedly want to sign a top-class midfielder who can act as a long-term replacement for the likes of Thiago, Jordan Henderson and James Milner, and the Dutchman is seen as a strong contender to fill that void.

The Verdict: Would be the perfect addition

De Jong is a fantastic player who has been described as ‘extraordinary’ by Xavi, and he could be the perfect man to add some youth and class to Liverpool’s midfield.

First up, how many Liverpool players won the 1966 World Cup with England?

He is hugely press-resistant in possession, using the ball superbly in tight spaces and enjoying a 90.5% pass completion rate across 13 La Liga appearances this season – something that Thiago is famed for.

Not only that but De Jong is effective off the ball, making two tackles for Holland in the aforementioned win over Senegal, so you could say he might be the all-round package and a true modern midfielder who Liverpool need at this moment in time.
