Some Liverpool supporters have been mocking a pundit who believes the Reds should sign Donny van de Beek.
Jurgen Klopp could make a number of new signings this summer, with certain individuals joining Ibrahima Konate as new recruits at Anfield.
The departure of Gini Wijnaldum means that midfield could be an area which needs addressing, with the Dutchman such a key figure for Liverpool in recent years, scoring some huge goals and rarely missing a game in five seasons at the club.
If the 30-year-old was a roaring success with the Reds, his compatriot Van de Beek, has had a torrid time at Manchester United, scoring just once in 36 appearances in his first season at Old Trafford.
Bizarrely, Ajax legend Sjaak Swart believes the midfielder would be a shrewd signing for Liverpool, telling Soccernews that the 24-year-old would be a “wonderful replacement” for Wijnaldum.
It is a move which is almost impossible to see happening, because of the Reds’ rivalry with United and Van de Beek’s failure to make an impression in Manchester.
Liverpool fans mock Van de Beek claim
These Liverpool fans on Twitter gave their thoughts on Swart’s sensational claim about Van de Beek as a successor to Wijnaldum.
“Never going to happen“
“This would really upset me“
“Nah I’m good“
“This definitely is silly season amongst us“
“If he can’t get in ahead of Fred or McTominay…..how would he get in over Thiago, Henderson, Fabinho“
