Liverpool hopes of landing defender reportedly suffers big blow

According to the Daily Star, the Italian giants Inter Milan have initiated first contacts with the representatives of Lazio defender Stefan De Vrij, who has been closely followed by Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

The highly-rated Dutch centre-half will be a free agent next summer, as his contract with the Biancocelesti expires at the end of the season, and he is already free to negotiate with other clubs.

Despite the signing of Virgil Van Dijk, Jurgen Klopp is desperate to bring another top-class defender, as he seems quite unhappy with the performances of Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip.

On the other hand, the Nerazzurri have a long-standing interest in the 26-year-old ace, and they are looking to take advantage of player’s will to stay in Italy.

United and Chelsea are also anticipating the opportunity to grab the former Feyenoord star because Victor Lindelof and Antonio Rudiger both failed to impress this season.
