“Highly rated” young left-back Jetro Willems is the latest left-back to be linked with a move to Anfield, and reports suggest we’re plotting a £13m move for the Dutch international (via the Echo).
We were badly in need of a left-back already, with Alberto Moreno not considered to be the required calibre by many – and the Spaniard alone not enough anyway. But now that reports have linked young Brad Smith with a move to follow Jordon Ibe to Bournemouth too (via the Echo), we’ll be left wanting even more.
Willems would be a fantastic addition if we can get him, and despite being just 22-years-old the PSV Eindhoven star already has a huge number of games under his belt with both club and country.
He’d not only challenge Moreno for a starting spot at left-back, but may push to make it his own pretty quickly. This would be what a huge number of fans are hoping for, as they’d like to see someone come in and replace Moreno rather than simply play backup.

We’ve been linked with a number of other left-backs without much success, but Willems is arguably the most exciting of the lot. It would be a great bit of business if we could get him in, so hopefully the reports are true.
