Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was in Rotterdam on Sunday to watch his potential summer targets, Feyenoord spokesman has confirmed.
The Reds manager flew to Holland to watch Feyenoord defeat PSV Eindhoven at De Kuyp, as he wanted to see a number of players from both sides at first hand.
“We can confirm that Brendan Rodgers was here on Sunday,” Feyenoord spokesman confirmed to Sky Sports.
Sky Sports is reporting that talented stopper Stefan de Vrij was the main reason behind Rodgers’ trip to Rotterdam, as the former Swansea boss continues to search for a new centre-back.
Fellow defender Bruno Martins-Indi and midfielder Jordy Clasie are believed to have been closely monitored as well.
PSV Eindhoven stars Kevin Strootman and Jeremain Lens were also on Rodgers’ radar, although with some of top European clubs showing interest in the two players, they don’t look like realistic targets at the moment.
The interesting thing is that all five players are currently part of the Holland national team.
