It’s no secret that Liverpool are in need of a new left-back; James Milner is a midfielder and Alberto Moreno is being kept out of Jurgen Klopp’s by said midfielder.
Last summer there was a ‘media storm’ when Jetro Willems, via Twitter, wished Gini Wijnaldum good luck for his move to Liverpool. That shouldn’t be all that interesting; they played together at PSV a few years ago but the story didn’t stop there.
Liverpool fans bombarded the Dutchman with tweets, asking him to join Gini at Anfield and, somewhere along the way, an edited photo of Willems in a Liverpool shirt was on his Snapchat.
Good fun but why shouldn’t Liverpool sign him? He’s one of the most promising left-backs in Europe – able to fly up and down the left side of the field, pick out lengthy passes and even chip in the odd goal.
It’s not unrealistic either, Willems recently told Fox Sports he is prepared to leave Eredivise, citing he had an opportunity to leave before and mentioning how the football in England is “twice as hard”.
