Liverpool are reportedly ‘in the race’ to sign FC Barcelona and Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong during upcoming the winter transfer window.

With the January transfer window opening in just over a month, De Jong being linked with a move to the Premier League feels only natural.

The Dutchman was heavily linked with Manchester United during the summer. He was reportedly Erik ten Hag’s main transfer target.

United eventually admitted defeat as they instead pursued Real Madrid’s Casemiro. This was a much easier deal to complete, as the Brazilian was actually interested.

De Jong meanwhile remains at Barcelona and he featured prominently under Xavi in the weeks leading up to the World Cup.
