Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was reportedly very interested in the young Dutchman and there was suggestion in the Express that the Merseyside outfit were favourites to land the 21-year-old but, not for the first time, they had a transfer target snatched from their grasp.

With his relationship with some Kop fans rocky at the minute, the prospect of failing to finish in the top four and therefore the inevitable struggle to attract top quality players to the club has seen the Northern Irishman come in for a world of abuse on social media.

Take a look at some of the best tweets from fans of the Anfield outfit:
