Liverpool summer transfer activity has so far focused on improving their midfield, with the signings of Mac Allister and Szoboszlai. However, the Reds are now reportedly turning their attention to bolstering their defense, with Perr Schuurs of Torino emerging as a top target.
Notably, Liverpool had made a bid of 30 million euros for the Dutch defender, which was rejected by Torino. However, it seems that Jurgen Klopp and his team are not giving up on their pursuit of Schuurs just yet.
According to exclusive reports from Football Insider, Liverpool are still keen on securing the services of the 23-year-old center back. It is believed that Schuurs is a top target for Klopp, who is eager to strengthen his defensive options ahead of the upcoming season.
Schuurs had an impressive debut campaign with Torino last season, following his move from Ajax in 2020. He is a highly talented center back, having won every major prize in Dutch football during his time with Ajax.
Although he is yet to make his debut for the Netherlands, Schuurs was named in the senior squad for the Nations League in 2020, highlighting his potential to be a top player at the international level.
It is worth noting that Schuurs’ current contract with Torino runs until 2026, and he is valued at around 50 million euros (£42.6million). This means that Liverpool will have to make a substantial offer if they are to successfully secure his signing.
So, should Liverpool submit a new offer for Schuurs? The answer to that question will depend on a variety of factors, including the club’s financial position and their priorities for the upcoming season.
However, there is no denying that Schuurs would be a valuable addition to Liverpool’s squad. The Reds struggled defensively last season, and improving that area of the pitch could be crucial to their chances of success in the Premier League and other competitions.
Ultimately, whether or not Liverpool make a new bid for Schuurs remains to be seen. But if they do, they will be hoping that it is enough to convince Torino to part ways with one of their most promising young players.
