English Premier League outfit Liverpool are already making efforts to add more strength to their squad after learning that the race for the EPL title has become tougher than it was last season.

In the previous season, the Reds team came close by finish second behind Man City while they also went ahead to the Champions League finals but were defeated by Spanish giants Real Madrid.

It is now being reported by Sport via Calciomercato that the Merseyside club are already pushing for the signature of Ajax star Matthijs De Ligt and they are already preparing a bid to land him in the coming summer window.

Although, the Reds side are not alone in the pursuit of Matthijs De Ligt as it is reported that Man City and Barcelona are also keen to land him after he impressed so far this season.

It was expected that Matthijs De Ligt moves away from Ajax in the last winter transfer window but was not favoured by the terms of the contract being offered to him.

However, suggestions are that Matthijs De Ligt will fancy a move to Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool because of the relationship the clubs have with his agent Mino Raiola which is expected to play a major role.
