Ajax star and Liverpool target Toby Alderweireld has issued a come-and-get-me plea to the Premier League

“For me it is important to take a step forward. Spartak is an option but I will have to think carefully. The level is higher than the Dutch league, but it is very far from home.

“Besides, to be honest, I prefer England to Russia. Let’s see what options I have, it is an important year as it is before the World Cup.” (Het Nieuwsblad)

Liverpool would like to add his versatility to the squad, so it will be interesting to see if they nail down his services
