Liverpool run rule over flying Dutchman - 'Kuyt is a role model'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have sent scouts to watch 20-year-old winger target Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutch U21 international has been earning rave reviews for his performances in the Eredivisie this season, and Liverpool are thought to be one of the clubs interested in signing the player.

Sources in Holland claim scouts from the Merseysiders were in the stands to watch the Feyenoord ace against Heracles Almelo, although tribalfootball claims the player failed to impress the watching Liverpool hierarchy during the match.

Wijnaldum is a product of the youth system at De Kuip, and made his senior debut for the outfit as a teenager back in 2007.

Real Madrid and AC Milan are also thought to have taken a keen interest in the player in the past, whilst Chelsea have also been linked with bringing the player to the Barclays Premier League.

It is Liverpool who appear to be courting the player strongly at the moment thought, and his previous admittance of admiration for a current Red could bode well for a future move.

"Dirk Kuyt is my role model. He left Feyenoord when he was the best, I am not that far," said the player back in 2008.

Kuyt could play a key role in enticing the player to Anfield, particularly if other clubs look to challenge Liverpool for the signature.


It's unknown how much Wijnaldum would cost potential suitors, although Liverpool owners NESV have shown they are willing to back the manager financially and are ready to spend again in the summer.
