Liverpool enter the race to sign €50m-rated La Liga midfielder


Frenkie de Jong stays a popular figure in the market, with Liverpool establishing contact with him. The Barcelona midfielder also features on the radars of other PL giants, including Chelsea and Man United. The Dutch midfielder looks to be at a crossroads in his career.

While de Jong has been a reliable performer for the Blaugrana, he has become a squad option this campaign. And he recently confirmed that the Catalan giants pushed him to depart from Camp Nou in the summer transfer window. Frenkie has played 12 games for the Blaugrana this campaign.

But the Dutchman has started all the big games on the bench, leaving him frustrated. However, despite the reduction in stature at Barcelona, the Netherlands international stays a hot property in the market, with Man United, Chelsea, and Liverpool keen on signing him.

The Reds will likely delve into the market for a midfield reinforcement next summer. That is because Henderson has shown signs of regression this campaign, while Milner is in the twilight of his career. And with Thiago’s fitness woes not going away, the Merseyside giants will need to sign a new midfielder.

But while recent reports claimed the Merseyside giants are not interested in de Jong, they seem to be in contact with the Catalan giants midfielder. But with Chelsea and Man United also in the equation, the race to add the 25-year-old midfielder will be interesting to witness.
