The 22-year-old is rated as one of Dutch football’s most exciting young players and was in good form last season, despite the start of his campaign being disrupted by injury.
Indeed, the Netherlands international bagged two goals and four assists in 15 Eredivisie appearances from left-back, only eleven of which were starts.
Last weekend, Soccer News reported that Liverpool are targeting the 20-cap starlet amid their search for a new No.3 to replace the unconvincing Alberto Moreno.
The Reds have also been heavily linked with Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell but they now look set to miss out on the Foxes prodigy.
And according to The Metro, Willems has just dropped a massive hint that he’d welcome a summer transfer to Anfield via his official snapchat account.
He sent out a photograph of former PSV team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum signing for Liverpool, with his own head super-imposed over the midfielder’s.
