Liverpool step up interest in Lutsharel Geertruida, Crysencio Summerville

Premier League heavyweights Liverpool have reportedly held talks to sign Dutch duo Lutsharel Geertruida and Crysencio Summerville this summer.

According to a report by reputed journalist Graeme Bailey on HITC, Lutsharel Geertruida and Crysencio Summerville are the subjects of interest in Liverpool. The Reds are keen on signing a versatile defender and a productive winger in the summer transfer window. And they have held talks to sign the Dutch duo as Arne Slot looks to kick-start his spell at Anfield.

Lutsharel Geertruida, Crysencio Summerville and their rise

Lutsharel Geertruida has become one of the most highly sought-after defenders in the Eredivisie in the last few years. A native of Rotterdam, the Dutchman has gone from strength to strength since breaking into the first-team squad at Feyenoord. He has become a productive right-back but can also play as a centre-back.

The 23-year-old was excellent in the 2023/24 season, chipping in with nine goals and five assists in 47 appearances across all competitions. As for Crysencio Summerville, he has seen his stock skyrocket after a superb 2023/24 campaign with Leeds United, where he was a productive winger for the Whites.

The 22-year-old was exceptional throughout the campaign, contributing to 31 goals in 49 outings across all competitions by finding the back of the net 21 times and providing 10 assists. Geertruida and Summerville have captured the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe with their exploits, including Liverpool.

Premier League moves on the cards?

Liverpool’s interest in Lutsharel Geertruida is understandable. The Reds have been scouring the market for a centre-back heading into the summer transfer window. They might also need a right-back if Trent Alexander-Arnold plays as a midfielder in the 2024/25 season. So, Geertruida is a viable target for Liverpool.

As for Summerville, the Reds are in a spot of bother over the long-term futures of Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah. So, the Leeds United attacker is a viable target for Liverpool. And the Reds have held talks to sign the two Dutchmen in the summer transfer window.

With the Reds stepping up their interest in the Dutch duo, it will be interesting to see how the discussions to sign them progress. Liverpool will hope to land them to help Arne Slot kick-start his spell at Anfield on a high.
