Ben Jacobs: Liverpool Keen on Signing £35m Dutch star with 30 Goals/assists This Season

Journalist Ben Jacobs reports that Liverpool is eyeing a summer move for Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville.

With plans to strengthen their attacking lineup, Liverpool view Summerville as a prime target.

Jacobs suggests that Liverpool’s upcoming summer could be a busy one, with securing a young winger like Summerville possibly topping their agenda. He noted:

“Liverpool are going to be in for a really busy summer and there will be additions, particularly in a wide winger-type area.”

“Regardless of the fact that Mo Salah is expected to stay, with Luis Diaz not signing a new deal as of now Liverpool are still going to be looking for a slightly younger, wide, creative-minded player. That is where a target like Crysencio Summerville comes into the conversation.”

Promising Prospect

The star, valued at £35 million, has enjoyed a remarkable season with Leeds, tallying 20 goals and 10 assists across 48 appearances, with 28 contributions in the Championship alone.

His crucial role in Leeds’ journey to the play-offs underscores his significance, as he aims to propel them back to the Premier League.

Liverpool, observing the star’s stellar performance, may seek to reinforce their wide attacking options with youthful talent, a strategy that has paid dividends in the past.

Notable successes include Andy Robertson, who flourished after joining from Hull City, and Harvey Elliott, a promising addition at just 21 years old.

Summerville emerges as a potential target for Liverpool, with his burgeoning talent aligning with the club’s ethos.

While immediate playing time may not be guaranteed, his long-term prospects could see him become a mainstay, particularly with Mohamed Salah’s potential departure on the horizon. Uncertainty looms over Luis Diaz’s future, as he deliberates over a new contract.

Financially, Liverpool should comfortably meet Summerville’s valuation, yet the decision ultimately rests with manager Arne Slot.

While the club’s hierarchy navigates potential signings, the final approval may hinge on the Dutch head coach’s assessment upon his arrival.
