Dalglish On Edge As Striker Lifts Lid On Possible Liverpool Move

FC Twente frontman Luuk de Jong has reiterated his desire to play in the Premiership, alerting a host of clubs, including both Liverpool and Tottenham, who are reportedly interested in him.

21 year-old de Jong’s contract with his current employers runs out in June of 2014, meaning that any prospective suitors would have to stump up a sum of around €10 million in order to prise him away from Enschede.

Speaking earlier this week, though, the young frontman suggested that a move to England would not be a possibility in the immediate future.

"I’m still very happy playing for Twente, but every player has dreams," De Jong told

"Mine is to play in a nice foreign competition one day. And the Premier League is a really nice competition. I don’t have real plans for the future - I’ll see what comes my way."

Having already won 6 international caps as well as boasting a record of 24 goals in 56 league games for Twente, de Jong would be welcomed by both Kenny Dalglish and Harry Redknapp into their respective squads. However, it now appears as though both managers will have to wait to level an offer.
