LIVER­POOL are mon­i­tor­ing Ajax de­fender Perr Schu­urs fol­low­ing his out­stand­ing Cham­pi­ons League dis­play against them.

Schu­urs had tri­als at An­field ld as a 17-year-old and, al­though he im­pressed, the

Reds opted to leave him with For­tuna Sit­tard in Holland.

The 6ft-3in stop­per (right), , who has been likened to a young Vir­gil van Dijk, went on to cap­tain the Dutch top-flight out­fit as a teenager be­fore mov­ing to Ajax.

Now fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of Matthijs de Ligt to Juventus, Schu­urs has a reg­u­lar place in Erik ten Hag’s side.

While W the 20-year-old is yet to make m his se­nior in­ter­na­tional de­but for Holland that could change due to Van Dijk’s long-term in­jury.

Liver­pool will get an­other look lo at Schu­urs when Ajax ttrav­ell to An­field in the re­turn Cham­pi­ons League game on De­cem­ber 1 — and that could lead to an of­fer in the Jan­uary win­dow.
