Liverpool make first approach to camp of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong

Liverpool are in talks with the camp of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

ESPN says Liverpool have 'initiated' contact with De Jong as they weigh up a move for the Dutchman.

De Jong had been the subject of persistent interest from Manchester United during the summer transfer window as new boss Erik Ten Hag looked to strike a reunion with the midfielder he enjoyed a thriving relationship with at Ajax.

But the Reds have formed contact with the midfielder ahead of potentially trying to seal a move in the coming windows.

The summer of 2023 is primed to be a big one at Anfield with the likes of Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara not getting any younger. While the futures of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are still to be decided.
