Liverpool transfer news: Reds urged to sign Ajax starlet Matthijs de Ligt by former Netherlands international

De Ligt is one of the most in-demand players in Europe ahead of the transfer window after captaining Ajax’s impressive young side to the Champions League semi-finals.

The 19-year-old has impressed with performances that belie his age, showing a calmness at the back, the ability to spark attacking moves, and an eye for a goal; he scored in Ajax’s quarter-final victory over Real Madrid earlier this year.

He has been linked with a move to Barcelona to join team-mate Frenkie de Jong, who has already agreed a €75million summer switch to Camp Nou, while a host of other European giants are also said to be interested in the youngster – including Liverpool.
