Liverpool still want De Vrij in the summer transfer window. De Vrij has two years left on his contract with Inter Milan. But due to Inter’s financial issues, they might sell him for a good deal. He has played a vital role in Inter’s Serie A triumph this year. The Netherlands international is a regular in Conte’s team. Inter have finally ended Juventus’ continuous 9-year reign. The Nerazzurri fans are over the moon.
Liverpool’s main center-back pair, Van Dijk and Gomez have been injured for the whole year. Matip got injured as well and Henderson who had to play at the back is also suffering an injury. So even though all of them would be fit for the next season, they might not be able to start every game. Hence, Liverpool are going after De Vrij. As reported by FC Inter News. Liverpool have talked with De Vrij’s agents
Liverpool still want De Vrij to bolster their backline for next season
De Vrij has been the main figure at back for Inter this season. He holds the back 3 really well and is very comfortable on the ball. De Vrij is capable of winning aerial duels and has scored a couple of goals from the set pieces as well. He sometimes acts as a sweeper and makes sure to keep the ball out of danger area. He has played really well in Serie A till now, had an impressive stint at Lazio and now helped Inter to win Serie A. It has been difficult for him to get a place in the Netherlands team because they have Van Dijk and De Ligt as their first choice. But he can play alongside Van Dijk at Liverpool as they both have a good connection.
It remains to be seen whether Inter would like to sell such a crucial player or not.
