Liverpool Eye Twente Youngster Luuk De Jong As Long-Term Replacement For Dirk Kuyt

Signed from De Graafschap in 2009, De Jong has quickly developed into one of Europe’s rising stars and has already become a key member for the Tukkers.

The striker netted the only goal in Twente’s 1-0 victory over Ajax in the Supercup and continued his bright start to the season with a brace against Vitesse Arnhem in the first Eredivisie win of the campaign.

With a 6ft 2in frame and clinical finishing ability, the striker is seen as an ideal replacement for Dirk Kuyt, who has struggled with a few niggling injuries this season.

The story is too old to be commented.

of course 2.5 milion for pure talent is nothing

Is 2.5 million all they want for him?

He would be a good signing for them. The problem would be attracting him. I'd think he'd want to play champions league football
