Liverpool have been interested in signing the Ajax ace for quite some time, according to reports.
According to a report from Spanish media outlet Marca, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is still prioritising the signing of Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt this summer, and the German feels as though the 19-year-old is the only addition he needs.
The Holland international has firmly established himself as one of the very best central defenders in world football over the past 12 months, and he really would be an exceptional addition for the Reds.
According to Spanish media outlet Sport, Ajax value Die Ligt at around €60 million (£53.5 million), and in today's day and age, that would represent superb value for money for Liverpool, but they will have their work cut-out if they are to bring him to Merseyside this summer.
According to a report from Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, the Dutchman is also wanted by Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and. Juventus.
Marca claims that Klopp is prioritising a move for De Ligt, however, and will do everything within his power to bring him to Anfield this summer.
The young centre-back possesses exceptional talent and superb leadership skills, and he really would be an outstanding signing for Liverpool.
If Klopp does bring him to Anfield, the Reds would surely have the best central defensive partnership in world football, with De Ligt and Virgil van Dijk paired together, and they would then be in a great position from which to win their first top flight title since 1990.
