Liverpool are reportedly ready to submit an offer to bring Torino defender Perr Schuurs to Anfield as the club prepares an overhaul in the summer.

Liverpool have struggled defensively this season and fans have called for certain players to either be dropped or sold. 

Football Insider reported last month that Liverpool will consider offers for both Joel Matip and Nat Phillips this summer and that will surely mean new faces will be brought in.

Netherlands and Torino defender Perr Schuurs has a contract at the Olympic Grande Stadium that runs until 2026, and his performances this season as a regular starter under Torino boss, Ivan Juric, have caught the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
