Perr Schuurs

It is suspected that Klopp’s Liverpool will seek to purchase a substitute for Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez’s injured pair with Perr Schuurs.

Liverpool made an offer to sign Ajax central defender Perr Schuurs, according to an Italian website, Corriere dello Sport, only a season after the 21-year-old replaced Matthijs de Ligt.

“Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is considering dropping into the transfer market in a bid to provide cover for injured defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, and Corriere dello Sport believes Klopp has submitted a bid for Ajax centre-back Perr Schuurs,” ESPN reported.

“The Italian newspaper believes Klopp has offered £27 million for Schuurs, who has stepped up for Ajax since the sale of Matthijs de Ligt to Juventus,” added the report.

The sources concluded to suggest that Ajax is willing to accept the offer and complete the deal come January.

Meanwhile Liverpool have a chance to take a league table lead when they travel to Brighton on Saturday.
