Slovakia Star Proves His Worth at Euro 2024, Catches Liverpool’s Eye

David Hancko is now a £30 million target for Liverpool after his impressive display against Belgium at Euro 2024.

Liverpool’s management is working hard to ensure that the Arne Slot era gets off to the greatest possible start, so they have a busy summer ahead of them.

Jurgen Klopp has been replaced by Slot in the Reds dugout, and everyone associated with the Anfield team will be looking for Slot to start playing right away.

Given Joel Matip’s departure from the Premier League club, Liverpool will probably add players to their roster in the upcoming weeks, especially in defense.

The Reds have been connected to a centre-back who had the finest possible start to his Euro 2024 campaign in recent days.

David Hancko: A Prime Candidate for Liverpool’s Next Signing

The guy in question is Feyenoord’s David Hancko, a defender who helped Slovakia upset Belgium in Frankfurt during their Group E opening.

Liverpool are reportedly interested in the 26-year-old and has called the Dutch team to express their interest, according to a recent report from Mundo Deportivo.

The likes of Leicester City and Atletico Madrid are rumoured to be in the running for the £30 million-rated defender in addition to the Reds.

On Monday night, Hancko played for Slovakia against Belgium. He put on a solid performance and made a vital goal-line clearance to help keep the score at 1-0.

Tim de Cler, a former Feyenoord defender, was enthralled with the supposed Liverpool target and sang his praises after the meeting.

He is so stable and can basically do anything. I just think he is a top defender all-round,” he said, as per Soccernews.

“If he makes it to the next round, and that chance is quite high, his market value will also increase again. More and more clubs are becoming interested. And they were already there.

I think he can easily handle a club just below the top six in Europe. Then I’m talking about a club like Atlético Madrid or Liverpool. He can certainly handle that.”

Spotlight on David Hancko: Liverpool’s Potential Signing

Before joining Fiorentina in 2018, Slovakian club Zilina was where David Hancko began his career.

Despite playing little in the renowned purple shirt, he performed better when he was a permanent member of Sparta Prague, first on loan.

Hancko won an Eredivisie title and a Dutch Cup under Arne Slot, who is currently at Liverpool, thanks to his efforts in the Czech Republic, which helped him get a transfer to Feyenoord.

The 6′ 2″ defender has already acknowledged his love for the Reds, claiming he has done so since the team’s victory in the Champions League in 2005.

Hancko told Aktuality, via FR12:

 “It all started with the Istanbul Champions League final in 2005, which my parents allowed me to watch until the end, and I didn’t have to go to bed even when extra time was going on.

And then came Martin Skrtel. I have been a Liverpool fan ever since. I follow the English Premier League the most, so that is my dream.”
