Liverpool Close To Completing 5th Summer Signing
Having not won the Premier League since its inception in 1992, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp will know the importance of competing for the title next season. Liverpool fans are not deluded and they sure will know they have little chance of winning the Premier League next season, especially with what Manchester City have done in the transfer window so far. However, they will expect their club to fight for the title until the end.
The Reds have been very active in the summer transfer window so far. Klopp has brought in four new players and Mohammed Salah has signed a new contract, which is very good news for the club and their fans. Further positive news is that the latest reports are claiming that Liverpool are edging closer to completing their 5th signing of the summer transfer window.
So far AS Monaco star Fabinho has signed for the Merseyside club, as well as RB Leipzig’s highly-rated Guinean international Naby Ketia. And for the reserves, Liverpool have signed two high-profile youngsters in Bobby Duncan from Manchester City’s highly-regarded academy, and Isaac Christie-Davies, who won the FA youth cup with Chelsea. A third youngster is now set to join, according to various reports.
Highly-rated Ajax defender Ki-Jana Hoever is the defender said to be on his way to Anfield. The 16-year-old is a very highly-rated right-back who can also play at centre-back and defensive midfield when needed. He is of course not a glamorous name that many Liverpool fans would have preferred but I doubt anyone will complain if he ends up being another Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Ki-Jana Hoever is a regular member for the Netherlands under-17 national team. He has also been a key member of the Ajax under-17 team. Hoever played a total of 13 games, scoring two goals and creating one assist for the Ajax youth team last season and has attracted interest from many top European clubs.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked with his signing which is quite telling. The aforementioned clubs would certainly not be interested in him if they did not see value in him, and should Liverpool beat the chasing pack to his signing, it would be a massive coup for the Reds.
