Perr Schuurs responds to Liverpool transfer speculation

Perr Schuurs has insisted that he is not currently thinking about leaving Ajax amid rumours that Liverpool want to sign him during the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old has made 14 appearances for his Dutch club this season, including both Champions League matches against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

A recent report claimed that the Reds are lining up a £27m offer for the centre-back, who has a contract in Amsterdam until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

However, Schuurs has revealed that he wants to play at Ajax “for a few more seasons”.

“I hear and read [Liverpool rumours] too,” Schuurs told SBS6. “It’s my first season as a regular at Ajax. I want to play here for a few more seasons and win prizes. I’m not really working on that yet.”

The Netherlands Under-21s international has made 35 first-team appearances for Erik ten Hag’s side.
