Anfield side keen on PSV Eindhoven forward.
CalcioMercato today reports that Liverpool are lining up a move for PSV Eindhoven winger Dries Mertens. The Belgian international has been a huge success since his move to the Philips Stadion and is now attracting the attention of a number of interested parties.
The pint sized attacker notched up 25 goals last term and has proven a constant threat to Eredivisie defences and he could well be just the type of player Brendan Rodgers could use to beef up his front-line.
The Anfield boss has been forced into trusting to youth due to the lack of faith he has in the likes of Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson, and whilst this has led to both Suso and Raheem Sterling making instant impacts in the first team the Northern Irish manager wants to bring in experienced performers who can help unlock Premier League defences.
Speedy Mertens may well jump at the chance of a move to Liverpool and this source states his valuation at being around €12.4m (£10m), a fee that the Merseyside club may well be worth forking out for the 25 year old.
