Liverpool have been handed a boost in their reported pursuit of Netherlands international Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld.
The Reds were noted as one of the clubs to have established an interest in signing the winger from Club Brugge earlier on this year.
A host of teams are understood to be in the race to land the Dutchman and, according to a report from Calciomercato, AC Milan have passed up the chance to complete a deal for him.
The Serie A outfit are believed to be apprehensive about landing Groeneveld because of their concerns over his ability to improve their team, along with the player’s recent fitness struggles.
He has only played 12 Pro League matches for Club Brugge this season, finding the back of the net on four occasions, and only recently returned to action after a long-term ankle injury.
The winger was also linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in recent times, indicating that a summer tug of war could ensue over Groeneveld’s signature.
Why Liverpool should move for Groeneveld
The winger is only 22-years-old and has plenty of time to grow into an exceptional player.
The Dutchman would improve Liverpool’s options; there is room for improvement, but he has the quality to thrive in the Premier League.
The Brugge attacker would provide Jurgen Klopp with another alternative should he opt to rest Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah.
Groeneveld is unlikely to cost a considerable sum and could be a shrewd acquisition for the Reds.
