Liverpool and Everton fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have looked more and more interested at the latest claim from the Daily Mail as it has been claimed that both clubs are set to battle it out for Ajax’s Toby Alderweireld.
The defender is rated at around £7 million and is currently flourishing in the Eredivisie. Liverpool of course will be on the lookout for a central defender in the summer given that long standing legend Jamie Carragher is set to retire and the future of Martin Skrtel is looking increasingly uncertain.
For their part, Everton are considering a move for the Belgium international who would of course link up with national compatriots Marouane Fellani and also Kevin Mirallas. A tug of war in Merseyside would of course spark the interest of fans and the media alike and at only £7 million for the defender that fee would not rule other clubs out of making a shock bid either.
Rodgers wants to bring in three or four new faces this summer as the club look to return back to their glory days and despite his future being somewhat uncertain, David Moyes is planning ahead for next season as per usual.
