Balague: Liverpool are in talks with De Ligt
According to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Liverpool are - or have been - in talks with Matthijs De Ligt.
The Ajax captain was widely thought to be joining Barcelona this summer, but that move is now in doubt and the 19 year old appears to be re-assessing his options.
One of those options is now LFC, according to many. Something that Balague seemed to confirm in the BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily Podcast.
The Dutch international has previously expressed his desire to play alongside Virgil Van Dijk at club level, something that has excited many Reds and the news from Balague that Liverpool have shown an interest and have 'been talking to him' are very interesting.
With reports also that Liverpool will look to move Dejan Lovren on this summer, a slot will no doubt open up at centre back.
At the reported £55 million, he wouldn't come cheap but with the projected profits from the Champions League final run and player sales, it isn't like we couldn't afford it.
