Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has called on the club to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld who’s expected to leave the North London club this summer.
Steve Nicol is certain that Belgian international Toby Alderweireld can be the perfect centre back partner for Virgil Van Dijk.
The former Liverpool defender spoke about Alderweireld while he was doing his punditry work on ESPN as he urged the Reds to sign Alderweireld who’s available for just £25m.
Van Dijk is the undisputed first-choice centre back at Liverpool but the Dutchman has not had a settled partnership this season after playing with four different players over the course of the season.
He started the season with Joe Gomez only for the England international to sustain a long-term injury in December.
Joe Gomez has been injured since then for Liverpool who have had to partner Joel Matip, Fabinho and Dejan Loren with Van Dijk at various times.
Steve Nicol believes that Toby Alderweireld will be the perfect defensive partner for Van Dijk.
Toby Alderweireld is most likely to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
He had few months left on his previous Spurs contract before the club activated the extra year in his deal until the end of next season with a £25m release clause.
