Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been talking up Netherlands international pair Matthijs De Ligt and Virgil Van Dijk.

The duo will take on Kane's England tonight in the UEFA Nations League.

Kane has been praising the pair, who Liverpool fans hope will line up together at club level next season.

 

The Liverpool Echo report odds have crashed over the past 24 hours on De Ligt joining Liverpool this summer with the Reds credited with interest.

Speaking to Sky Sports coverage of last night's Nations League game, Kane commented on how the Dutch pair complement each other.

Kane said: "Van Dijk's tall, strong, powerful, both are good on the ball.

"From watching De Ligt he reads game very well. Their styles complement each other. Sometimes it happens naturally."

Liverpool already have the best defence in the Premier League. Adding De Ligt alongside Van Dijk would make them an even bigger force to be reckoned with.

Ajax are going to find it tough to keep hold of De Ligt this summer after his outstanding performances in the Champions League this past season.

Nations League success against England will see the hype build ever further.
