Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Liverpool fans take to Twitter to call for De Ligt

There will be a lot of huge transfers going through this summer, that much is almost guaranteed. In a single summer, we could potentially see a whole host of clubs break their transfer records, as two of the top six did last year.

Not many are backing Liverpool to do so, but as the Reds faithful discuss a possible move for Matthijs De Ligt it is simply impossible to rule anything out over the next few months.

Many fans have taken issue with the above tweet, and it’s not hard to see why as they yearn for an era of dominance.

At the moment, Virgil Van Dijk is probably the most popular answer to the question: Who is the best defender in the world? But by no stretch do Liverpool have the best centre-back pairing.

That’s down to the fact that Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren aren’t of the calibre that the Kopites are aiming for and Joe Gomez is always injured, yet if De Ligt signed Anfield would boast the best defence in the world on a weekly basis.

We’re already set to see the incredible van Dijk alongside de Ligt for the next few years at international level as the Oranje aim to get back to their previous heights. Whether or not that will happen at Anfield too with the same pairing is yet to be seen, even if it does look very unlikely. Offer de Ligt to Liverpool fans, though, and they’d all jump at the chance to have him at the heart of their back four.
