Liverpool have already been busy during the summer transfer window, completing two huge signings. 

The Reds have already signed Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as Dominik Szoboszlai from German side RB Leipzig.

The two midfielders will bolster manager Jurgen Klopp’s squad ahead of next season, but it appears that the German is still keen to add at least one new signing before the window shuts.

According to Tuttosport via The Express, Liverpool are preparing a second offer for Torino defender Perr Schuurs.

The report claims that the Merseyside outfit have already seen a £25 million offer for the player rejected, and are now set to return with a bid of £34 million.

Schuurs, 23, joined Torino from Ajax last summer and enjoyed an impressive first season in Italy.

The Dutchman made 33 appearances across all competitions, helping Torino to a top ten finish in the Italian top flight.

Schuurs is reportedly the target of interest from Liverpool

Last term the likes of Joel Matip and Joe Gomez failed to impress when called upon, while Ibrahima Konate also failed to maintain a regular starting spot alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Gomez, Van Dijk and Matip have also all suffered from injuries over the past couple of seasons, prompting Klopp to look for defensive reinforcements.

Next term Liverpool will be without Champions League football after their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table last season, with the Reds having to settle for a place in the Europa League instead.

Schuurs also had trials with Liverpool as a teenager, and Klopp has reportedly been a huge admirer of the player for at least two years.

The German is said to have instructed those in charge of the club to complete the signing, but it remains to be seen how much Torino would demand for his signature.

At present, Schuurs is contracted to his current side until the summer of 2026 after signing a four-year-deal when he joined the club.
