Liverpool is keen on signing a 24-year-old star who Slot believes has the potential to become the best player in the world “the best in the world” – Report…



Liverpool is interested in bringing in a 24-year-old star whom Slot thinks has the potential to become the top player in the world.


Liverpool interested in signing 24-year-old talent believed to have the potential to become the best player in the world.


The highly regarded Dutch midfielder has been impressing under the guidance of Feyenoord manager Arne Slot.


Slot, who will be taking over as Liverpool manager at the conclusion of the season, has expressed his desire to bring in midfielder Mats Wieffer as one of his first signings. He previously praised Wieffer’s abilities and stated that he has the potential to reach the pinnacle of the sport.


According to HITC, Wieffer is a top priority for Slot in the upcoming summer transfer window.


Liverpool is reportedly interested in securing the services of 24-year-old star Mats Wieffer, who is currently playing under Arne Slot at Feyenoord.


The Dutch midfielder has caught the eye of the incoming Liverpool manager, with Slot believing that Wieffer has the potential to become one of the best players in the world.


As Slot prepares to take over from Jurgen Klopp, he has identified Wieffer as a priority signing for the upcoming summer transfer window.


Wieffer, who joined Feyenoord from Excelsior in 2022, played a crucial role in their successful Eredivisie title campaign under Slot last season, contributing 10 goals in 37 matches across all competitions.


Slot has great belief in Wieffer’s potential and considers him to have the ability to become one of the best players in the world. The 24-year-old midfielder has already showcased his talent and potential, earning a place in the Dutch national team.


If Slot were to become the next manager of Liverpool, Wieffer may be enticed to join the club due to the presence of fellow Dutch players such as Virgil Van Dijk, Cody Gakpo, and Ryan Gravenberch.


The manager, aged 45, has been vocal about his admiration for the former FC Twente midfielder during their time together. He even went as far as stating that Wieffer has the potential to become one of the top players globally.


In a recent interview with Voetbal International, as reported by HITC, Slot mentioned:


“Mats Wieffer has shown tremendous progress in his development. I find that truly impressive.


“If he continues on this trajectory, he could reach the pinnacle of world football. Of course, it’s an ambitious statement for any player. However, Mats has the capability to further improve.”


Wieffer Could Partner with Mac Allister

Slot’s tactical approach often involves utilizing two defensive midfielders.


In terms of potential positions at Liverpool, Wieffer is likely to fill one of the holding midfield spots in Slot’s preferred 4-2-3-1 setup.


Throughout the season, Wieffer has played 26 times in the holding role out of 42 matches for the Rotterdammers, scoring four goals and providing two assists.


Despite excelling in the holding role, Wieffer has also showcased his versatility by playing in a more attacking box-to-box role, contributing two goals and two assists in 16 appearances in red and white.


Given Liverpool’s lack of a top-tier holding midfielder, Slot may see Wieffer partnering with Alexis Mac Allister to offer both defensive stability and creativity on the ball.


Liverpool is eyeing more young talent from Feyenoord, with reports linking them to promising players aside from Wieffer.


One of these talents is David Hancko, a skilled centre-back who has shown progress under Slot in the Netherlands. With a potential departure of Joel Matip, Liverpool could be in the market for a new defender.


Hancko’s admiration for Liverpool adds to the speculation. Additionally, midfielder Quinten Timber, brother of Arsenal’s Jurrien Timber, is also reportedly on Liverpool’s radar as they aim to strengthen their squad to compete against Manchester City and Arsenal for the Premier League title next season.
