Liverpool Set To Table £13m Offer For International Defender

By on July 25, 2016

The summer transfer window is now open for business so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Liverpool are linked with Jetro Williams…

Liverpool are set to launch a £13m bid to sign PSV Eindhoven star Jetro Williams as Jurgen Klopp continues his search for a new left-back this summer, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Klopp has already been extremely active in the transfer market bringing in six new signings with Georginio Wijnaldum joining Marko Grujic, Sadio Mane, Alex Manninger, Joel Matip, Ragnar Klavan and Loris Karius in making the move to Anfield.

However, with Brad Smith lined-up for a move to AFC Bournemouth, Klopp is in desperate need of another left-back to compete with Alberto Moreno – who’s been heavily criticised for some of his performance since joining from Sevilla two years ago.

Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for Ben Chilwell in recent weeks but with Leicester proving difficult to deal with, it looks as though Klopp is ready to turn his attention to alternative targets.

And it appears the German coach has cast his eye outside of England as the Liverpool Echo are now citing reports coming out of Holland that claim Liverpool are set to make a £13m bid for PSV Eindhoven defender Jetro Williams.

The 22-year-old has been one of the best full-backs in the Eredivisie since joining PSV in 2011 and has also established himself in the Dutch national team with 20 caps to his name already despite his tender age.

Williams saw the first half of his 2015/16 campaign disrupted by a serious injury but he made a full recovery and returned to the first team in January to help the club pip Ajax to another league title.

I’m sure PSV will want to keep hold of the player but they may find it difficult to resist a £13m bid from Liverpool so Klopp may have finally found a long-term solution to his left-back problems if he can pull off this proposed deal.

    Yes , yes , yes please get Willems . Powerful at 22 . He does not hold on too long to the ball . Good crosses and corner kicks too . This guy is 200 percent better than Moreno .
