De ligt at present is Ajax’s Europe’s most sought player after his incredible performance this season.
While his teammate Van Dijk has been a strong force in Liverpool’s line of defence as the Merseyside have emerged as one of the most competitive teams Europe in terms of defence and attack.
Seeing the talent of both the players, Holland is lucky to have the pair in defence at the international level, and Liverpool must consider paying up to unite them at club level too.
