Liverpool Tracking Eredivisie Defender

Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Vitesse Arnhem defender Max Clark.

Clark joined the Eredivisie outfit in 2018 after rejecting a contract with Hull City and has since attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs.

The 23-year-old is already on Gareth Southgate’s radar for a potential England call-up in the near future and is now being tracked by the Reds.

According to the Daily Mirror, scouts from the Anfield club have been impressed by Clark’s statistics and could swoop for him in January.

With 18 months remaining on his existing deal, Vitesse are already expecting several offers for the left-back during the forthcoming transfer window.

Clark’s experience of Championship football coupled with his status as a homegrown player makes a potential deal viable for Liverpool to pursue.

His spell at the KC Stadium is thought to be a factor in the interest of Jurgen Klopp’s side, who signed Andy Robertson from the Tigers in 2017.

Since his £8 million move, Robertson has emerged as one of the leading full-backs in world football under the tutelage of the Liverpool manager.

And Clark, who is understood to be keen on a return to England next month, could be drafted in to serve as the Scotland international’s understudy.

The Premier League leaders have already secured the services of Red Bull Salzburg’s highly-rated playmaker Takumi Minamino on a £7.25m deal.
