Liverpool starlet target Georginio Wijnaldum insists he's taking his chance in-front of scouts.

The Feyenoord star is reportedly being watched by a number of clubs, including Liverpool, and a four-goal haul against Groningen will have gone someway to impressing the scouts.

"The truth is that I've been playing like this for weeks, only now the goals are flying in," said the 20-year-old.

Liverpool have been monitoring the player since last March, according to tribalfootball, and the player names compatriot Dirk Kuyt as one of his role models.

"Dirk Kuyt is my role model. He left Feyenoord when he was the best, I am not that far away."

Wijnaldum broke into the first team at De Kuip back in 2007, and has since made over 100 Eredivisie appearances for the club. He's also gained experience at European level.


 

Yet to receive a senior international cap, Wijnaldum has represented Holland at U21 level and is tipped to be a star of the future for the Netherlands.

The Reds were linked with an £8 million move for the player as far back as April, with Voetbal Centraal claiming Liverpool had already spent 18 months considering a move almost a year ago.

Despite two changes of management at Anfield, Liverpool are still thought to be in the hunt for the player and could make their move at the end of the season.
