Liverpool are considering a £9m move for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, according to reports from The Metro.

The Dutch international has emerged as one of the Eredivisie’s leading lights at the Philips Stadion, turning in a number of commanding and impressive displays.

His work rate, quality and desire saw him recently handed the captain’s armband at PSV by manager Phillip Cocu, but that has not deterred the Reds, who are ready to lure him across the North Sea to England.

Brendan Rodgers has been buoyed by his side’s start to the current campaign, and is keen to further boost hopes of a Champions League qualification sot by delving into the transfer market.

A new midfielder is seen as a priority, with Wijnaldum’s attacking flair particularly attractive to the Northern Irishman.

While the Merseyside club have a number of other targets, a £9m offer for the 23-year-old is rumoured to be bubbling away in the background, and is likely to be launched in the coming weeks.

Wijnaldum has netted 39 times in 105 outings for PSV, but has suffered with injury concerns this season.

The youngster is expected to be a part of Holland’s squad for the 2014 World Cup, and a move to Liverpool could help to boost his claims for a role in the final 23.
