Wolfsburg's Micky van de Ven issues 'come and get me' plea amid Liverpool transfer rumours

Liverpool transfer target Micky van de Ven has admitted he would ideally like to change clubs this summer as he continues to be linked with a move to Anfield.

While Liverpool's main priority in the summer transfer window is to sign midfield reinforcements, the club is also reportedly in the market for a left-sided central defender – should their budget stretch to that.

Reports in Germany claim Liverpool are interested in Wolfsburg centre-back Van de Ven.

The 22-year-old joined Wolfsburg from Dutch side Volendam in 2021 and has gone on to make 41 appearances for the Bundesliga club, scoring once.


He was brought to the Volkswagen Arena by former Wolfsburg sporting director Jorge Schmadtke, who was appointed to the same role at Liverpool at the start of the month.

While reports in Germany claim the Reds are monitoring Van de Ven, the Liverpool Echo claim the Merseyside club has not yet registered any official interest in the player.


Nevertheless, there will be plenty of attention on the young defender at the upcoming U21 European Championship, where he will represent the Netherlands.


Van de Ven seeking move this summer

Speaking ahead of the tournament, Van de Ven addressed the speculation surrounding his future.

"Of course, I read everything," he told ESPN, as reported by HITC.

"I have good contact with my agent, so I know what's going on. I'll see where it will lead.


"Hopefully, (a big transfer after the Euros) would be nice. The Premier League? Maybe, yes. Who knows.

"I am very good at Wolfsburg, so I don’t mind staying at Wolfsburg for another year.

"But if I get a chance to leave, I would like to."

Liverpool have already completed their first signing of the summer with Alexis Mac Allister joining from Brighton for an initial fee of just £35m.


Jurgen Klopp's side are in talks with several other midfield targets, with Nice's Khephren Thuram and Borussia Monchengladbach's Manu Kone high up on their wanted list.
