“Nobody gets rid of us,” said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp after their 4-2 comeback victory over Burnley on Sunday. Manchester City still lead with a point, but Klopp has play down talks of his side losing steam and instead fired at the media for making a fuss over their draw with local rivals Everton on Sunday.
Truthfully, it would be hard to write them off. Robert Firmino is back in the side and Reds are firing on all cylinders once more. Reds are yet to win the English title since 1989-90, and the burning ache and need to is reflected in how much they energy pumped in in every Premier League fixture.
But that has not stopped them from checking out prospects who could add extra quality to their side as the season is about to wrap up.
Already on their list is Dutch and Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt. The highly-rated centre-back has heads spinning at the Kop after admitting the possibility of a move to Anfield happening around the summer.
Speaking to Dutch press after Ajax floggedReal Madrid heavily in the Champions League, the young star did not paw at the questions, instead stating that “it could happen.”
The thought of reuniting with Dutch captain Virgil van Dijk could strengthen the cause.
The 19-year-old added, “They are a great side, and Van Dijk is there, and I learn a lot from playing with him for the national team.”
