Liverpool transfer target who passed over Man Utd received a stern warning from Jurgen Klopp.



Wesley Sneijder cautioned Jurrien Timber, a transfer target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, that he “loses every header” and would struggle in the Premier League.

Wesley Sneijder, a legend in the Netherlands, has cautioned Jurgen Klopp that Jurrien Timber, a transfer target for Liverpool, “loses every header” and is insufficiently skilled in the air to compete in the Premier League.

In advance of a vital summer for Klopp, who is anticipated to revamp his struggling playing team in the wake of a dismal season, the highly regarded Ajax defender, 21, has been linked with a move to Anfield.

While Timber has had another strong season and is once more being linked with a move to England, Ajax has suffered this season and appears set to lose their Eredivisie title to Feyenoord.

According to the Dutch publication Voetbal Primeur, TV host Wilfred Genee said on the Veronica Offside show on Monday night that Timber’s girlfriend was looking for a property in Liverpool, which led to rumors that the Reds were planning to sign the Netherlands international in the summer.

Sneijder, who amassed over 130 caps for the Netherlands during his long playing career, is sure that Timber will find it difficult to duplicate the success he has had at Ajax in the Premier League because of his little 5-foot-9 frame.

He’s a smart kid and a pretty excellent defender, Sneijder added during an appearance on the same program. But he consistently loses headers, which will be his undoing in England against those Premier League outfits.

Ever since Manchester United signed Erik ten Hag away from Ajax last summer, Timber has been widely linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Ten Hag, who has made it a habit to raid the Eredivisie since joining United, reportedly wanted Timber to move to England, according to reports at the time. Timber was not interested in the switch, and the deal fell through. However, the defender downplayed rumors that former United manager Louis van Gaal, who was in charge of the Dutch national team at the time, persuaded Timber not to make the move.

Later, Ten Hag finalized agreements for Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia. He also plundered Feyenoord. After a good first season in charge at Manchester, the Dutchman is anticipated to receive increased financial support in the coming summer.

Although club captain Harry Maguire is anticipated to leave the club at the end of the season, Ten Hag would suffer if they were to lose out on Timber. Furthermore, losing to Liverpool would be disappointing given that the Reds beat United to a deal for Cody Gakpo, another player from the Eredivisie, at the beginning of the year.
