Liverpool have enquired for Antony

Now, Football Insider are also reporting that Liverpool have enquired about signing the 22-year-old this summer. They claim that the Dutch side value Antony at £59 million after two impressive seasons in the Eredivisie.

However, the report further adds that Liverpool are not expected to pay the aforementioned fee for the Brazilian even though he features prominently on their list of attacking targets. Some journalists think Liverpool would be crazy to pay £59m for Antony.

The winger would be a decent addition in the long-term. Antony is only 22 years of age and he averaged a WhoScored player rating of 7.47 in the Eredivise last season. He is certainly a talented youngster. Manchester United, who have been heavily linked with the Brazilian, might drop the ball and he could stay at Ajax for another season, opening the door for Liverpool to make a move in the future.
