Liverpool keen on signing €45m ‘Matip 2.0’ in summer, Ten Hag also loves him



Towards the end of the current campaign, Jurrien Timber, an Ajax defender, is a target for both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.


According to 90Min, Timber is attempting to find a transfer outside of Amsterdam this summer.


According to reports, Timber has instructed his agents to look into potential suitors well before the transfer market opens.



There is already a lot of interest; Manchester United has been a longtime supporter, and Erik ten Hag is a big Timber fan from their time together at Ajax.


Ten Hag is said to adore Timber and would “take him tomorrow” if United and Ajax could come to an agreement.


Marseille, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, and Liverpool are also rumored to be interested, in addition to Tottenham and Liverpool.


Although Timber’s contract expires in 2025, a move to the Premier League for the center back this summer is sᴜԀԀenly possible.




Virgil van Dijk would be thrilled to see Timber, a 21-year-old great center back рrosрecт, join Liverpool.


Van Dijk thinks Timber has “so much promise” and calls him a “fantastic talent,” predicting a bright future for him.


Although Liverpool might be interested, Tottenham might be a better fit for him.



Josko Gvardiol, Levi Colwill, Max Kilman, and Nayef Aguerd have all recently been linked to Liverpool, suggesting that they are looking to add a natural left-sided defender this summer.


Right-footers like Timber might fit Joe Gomez’s profile because Liverpool appears to be prioritizing a different kind of defender.


With Cristian Romero in the center of Tottenham’s back three, signing Timber might allow him to play where he did for Atalanta, on the right flank.


Timber can give the Tottenham defense some serious speed, and hopefully does better than Davinson Sanchez, the last Ajax-signed defender Spurs brought in.


Spurs’ decision to make this change makes sense, but only if they want to continue playing with a back three going forward.


Although Manchester United may be the team most interested in acquiring Timber, Liverpool and Tottenham are also worth monitoring.


Liverpool kept informed of ‘Zidane 2.0’, who will be free agent in summer

Adrien Rabiot, a midfielder for Juventus, has a scenario that Liverpool wants to be kept informed about.


Adrien Rabiot’s contract status with Juventus is something that Liverpool has requested to be kept informed about, according to 90min (h/t Liverpool Echo).


The Serie A powerhouses’ current contract with the French international expires in the summer (according to Transfermarkt), but he has not yet agreed to a new term. He reportedly told Mirror that his future will be decided based on whether or not he can participate in the Champions League.



The former Paris-Saint-Germain midfielder is also attracting interest from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in addition to Liverpool. In August, United and he reached a signing agreement, but the transaction failed.


One of France’s top players throughout their journey to the World Cup final was Rabiot. The 27-year-old has been in decent form for Juventus as well, making 29 appearances in the middle of the field and contributing seven goals and two assists.


The Frenchman is a central midfielder who can control the ball and likes to make runs forward with or without the ball to control the pace of the game. He does engage in vigorous running in the middle of the pitch, something a midfielder under Jurgen Klopp must do to close down opponents.


Hence, even if Liverpool might need a midfield shake-up in the upcoming summer transfer window, they can ignore Rabiot. Although being a very excellent player, he might not work well in Klopp’s system.



We are aware that Jude Bellingham is the Reds’ main target, but there is also a good probability that Mason Mount and Matheus Nunes will be signed.


Also, we can see how well Harvey Elliott and Stefan Bajcetic are progressing. They can contend for regular minutes the following season if they have played a full season.


A great midfield team will be formed by these two, possibly three fresh midfielders, and a few seasoned players (such as Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, and Thiago Alcantara).
