The 17 year old, dubbed the ‘New Arjen Robben’, has impressed since breaking onto the scene last term, and has already been capped at Dutch Under 19 level.
Ajax Director of Football Marc Overmars has publicly stated his interest in the speedy forward, stating;
“Zivkovic? He is an interesting player that we are following,”
“Thinking about possible reinforcements for next season, our preference is for Dutch players.”
Zivkovic has started five Eredivisie fixtures this season and has scored five times and is a talent who would adhere to Liverpool’s youthful transfer policy whilst also offering Brendan Rodgers a fresh attacking option.
Rodgers may well make way for such an addition by cashing in on Fabio Borini, the Italian already away on loan at Sunderland and seemingly not part of the Northern Irishman’s plans.
Similarly Iago Aspas may be on his way having looked very much out of his depth since moving to Liverpool last summer.
