Liverpool Eyeing De Jong Move

Liverpool is interested in bringing prolific Eredivisie striker Luuk de Jong to Anfield this summer in a deal worth a reported £12.5million.

The FC Twente star has been on Kenny Dalglish’s radar for some time and the Reds boss believes he could be a good addition alongside top scorer Luis Suarez, according to Metro.

Liverpool are not the only team who have been monitoring the Holland international, his 23 goals in the league this season have reportedly attracted a number of European suitors.

The report claims that Dalglish is one of these and that the 21-year-old will be purchased with part of a £20million transfer kitty that will be granted the Liverpool manager this summer.

De Jong is not the only option being assessed by Dalglish, according to the report, Newcastle United’s Demba Ba has been singled out as a possibility but Tottenham Hotspur’s involvement could affect that move.

De Jong could be brought in as another Dutchman, Dirk Kuyt, looks set to leave the club this summer.
