Liverpool ahead of Man Utd in battle for Ajax defender Alderweireld

Liverpool are ahead of Manchester United for Ajax captain Toby Alderweireld. The Daily Express says Manchester United themselves have viewed Alderweireld as a long-term successor to Nemanja Vidic who has been plagued with injuries in the past 18 months.

Alderweireld gave the green light to a move to Anfield, telling Het Nieuws Laatste: "I do not want to play in an English club to mid-table. Unlike Newcastle, Liverpool meets my criteria."

It is believed that Alderweireld could fetch up to £8m.
