Liverpool have held talks with a 23-year-old Dutch International for a £34 million transfer fee

Liverpool FC are pushing hard to sign a 23-year-old Dutch International. The Merseyside giants are willing to pay a £34 million fee for bringing the midfielder to the Premier League.

The Reds have had a great summer transfer window.

They were able to sign exciting talents like Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho, and Calvin Ramsey. And above that, they were also able to extend the contracts of players like James Milner and above all the Egyptian King Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian international is without a doubt among the best footballers on the planet. And the club literally broke their bank to extend his deal. Salah will now earn £350,000 a week and this will make him 4th highest-paid player on the planet just behind PSG’s holy trinity Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar.

Salah will now stay at Anfield at least till 2025. And it’s a huge relief for them as it would have been really tough for them after already losing Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.

Liverpool in talks to sign Dutch Star

Liverpool may still want to acquire another forward option to make up for Sadio Mane, Divock Origi, and Takumi Minamino’s exits.

According to Sport Bible‘s Marco Timmer, Liverpool understands PSV will demand £34 million for its Dutch forward Cody Gakpo. And have already spoken with his agency.

However, given that we have almost certainly established that the club won’t be spending any more money this summer. And also that the arrivals are complete. It seems likely that this claim is accurate.

Although this won’t stop rumours from spreading, the fact that the 23-year-old has also been connected to Manchester City, Leeds United, and Arsenal raises the possibility that the player’s agency is pushing for a transfer to the Premier League.

Cody Gakpo’s 36-goal contributions in 47 appearances for PSV last season may attract Jurgen Klopp’s interest. But a transfer looks improbable, at least during this window.
