Arsenal legend Ian Wright said on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5 Live on Monday evening (7:59pm, March 19, 2018) that he wants the Reds to sign the Belgian international so that the Gunners can get a better result against their north London rivals.
Alderweireld is arguably one of the best defenders in the Premier League and in the world as well and it will be a huge coup for Liverpool if they can sign him.
The Belgian has struggled with injuries this season and has made only 10 Premier League appearances. However, he is a world class player and there is no doubt over his quality.
Wright said on The Monday Night Club show on BBC Radio 5 Live on Monday evening (7:59pm, March 19, 2018): “I’m just interested, I can’t wait to see Liverpool’s business in the summer. I’m so excited about that. I think they are a couple away, a couple away.
“Toby Alderweireld, get him from Tottenham so he can weaken them and Arsenal can do a little bit more against them.”
Alderweireld has a contract at the north London club till 2019, and despite ongoing talks over a new deal, he is yet to sign a contract extension.
Liverpool have signed Virgil van Dijk in the January transfer window and getting Alderweireld will make them a formidable force in the Premier League.
