Toby Alderweireld may be pushing for a move away from Atletico Madrid this summer after failing to get regular games last season.
He was thought to be an excellent purchase by Diego Simeone last summer, but the Atletico coach remained reluctant to rotate his squad over the course of the season. Alderweireld has been at the World Cup with Belgium, though playing mostly from the right-back position.
He was regularly able to show his class while playing in the Netherlands with Ajax and drew plenty of attention from the Premier League. After a disappointing season from a personal point of view, Liverpool may be able to offer Alderweireld an exit route and the chance of regular football in his favoured position.
