This comes after Liverpool were apparently ahead in the race to sign the 21-year-old according to Dutch paper De Telegraaf. Already fans have likened the situation to when the Reds missed out on signing Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal and Mohamed Salah to Chelsea in recent years. This has only made things worse for the Merseyside club after they lost in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday.
