Liverpool Urged To Sign £75 Million Defender
Liverpool have been advised to sign one of the best defenders in world football.
Jurgen Klopp already boasts one of the best defenders in the shape of Virgil van Dijk, who was snapped up for a staggering £75 million.
The towering-Dutchman has been a rock at the back since swapping Southampton for Liverpool.
The club have now been urged to snap up another £75 million rated defender.
Former Netherlands international Rene van der Gijp believes Liverpool is the best fit for Matthijs de Ligt.
"It would be great for Dutch football if those two defenders [De Ligt and Van Dijk] can play alongside each other for five to six years," he revealed.
"Then you are getting the best centre-back pairing in Europe," he added.
"What's the cost? He's one of the best in Europe at its age. He's so mature. Eighty million? I do not think Ajax will let him go for less.
"This guy can go anywhere. I think Spain and Italy are a good match for him."

The Ajax starlet remains subject to intense transfer speculation. A host of clubs are believed to be keeping tabs on the promising defender.
From La Liga leaders Barcelona to defending Italian champions Juventus.
The Catalan giants recently sealed the services of another budding Dutch talent. They beat Paris Saint-Germain to the signing of midfielder Frenkie de Jong in January.
The 21-year-old transferred to Barcelona for £65 million.
