If reports in the media are anything to go by then Liverpool considered signing of a Dutch attacking midfielder in the form of Donny van de Beek. According to an exclusive story recently covered by FCInterNews, Liverpool were one of the clubs, who were interested in hiring his services in the summer transfer window but in the end, no one matched Ajax’s huge asking price of 80 million euros (£69.5million). - For the Netherlands, Van de Beek has mainly played in the central midfield but with the Dutch champions, Eric ten Hag has mostly utilized him in the central attacking midfield role. Last season, the 22-year-old netted 9 goals and provided 10 assists in Ajax’s Eredivisie winning campaign. Moreover, he directly contributed in 5 goals in as many appearances to help his team win the Dutch Cup. Not to forget, Van de Beek netted vital goals in the KO stages of the UCL vs Juve and Tottenham away from home. In the current campaign, so far, in 12 appearances, he has scored 3 goals and provided 6 assists. His current contract with the Dutch giants will expire in 2022 (Ajax) and as per a recent report covered by Mirror Sport, he is currently valued at £100million.
