Liverpool keeping an eye on DeAndre Yedlin

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool could be ready to make a move for a World Cup star this summer having increased their interest in USA’s DeAndre Yedlin.

The 20-year-old has impressed as a substitute for Jurgen Klinsmann’s team and The Metro claim Liverpool are keen to offer him a trial.

Brendan Rodgers reportedly wants the Seattle Sounders man to train with his team during pre-season before deciding whether or not to pursue a summer transfer.

World Cup impact

Due to the impressive form of Fabian Johnson in the American defence, Yedlin has had limited playing time in Brazil, but he’s done enough coming off the bench to convince Rodgers to take a closer look at him.

Despite naturally being a right back, Yedlin’s pace has been used in a more attacking role for the US and he hasn’t looked out of place on the world stage.

Johnson replacement

At just 20-year’s old, Yedlin has his best years ahead of him and could perhaps be seen as a long-term replacement for England defender Glen Johnson should he move on this summer.

The Merseyside club have already been linked with a move for Benfica’s Maxi Pereira, but USA man Yedlin would surely be a better investment given his age.

The American has plenty of similarities with Johnson - both enjoy getting forward from the right-back position, while Yedlin is comfortable filling in at left-back, just as Johnson has done on occasion for Liverpool.

Though Seattle Sounders and MLS are unlikely to want to lose one of their brightest stars, Liverpool have shown they are willing to pay the price to secure their targets and have already spent in the region of £40million this summer.
