Liverpool Joins Race Against PSG for €22M-Rated Versatile Defender

Paris Saint-Germain could bolster its defense this summer while injecting youth. One name in the rumor mill that the capital club might pursue is Ajax’s teenage defender, Jorrel Hato. 

The Ligue 1 side have their eyes on LOSC Lille Leny Yoro, but PSG will likely need other files on tap if the pursuit for the Frenchman fails. If Hato is a serious target, then the Parisians face a tough challenge as the player has admirers in the Premier League. 

Football Insider reports, citing sources, that Liverpool are closely monitoring Hato ahead of the summer transfer window. The 18-year-old defender has been turning heads in Holland with standout performances for the Dutch giants this season, positioning himself as their newest prized asset.

The information from Football Insider adds that Liverpool’s recruitment team sees Hato as a promising footballer with skills. Nonetheless, they believe he still needs to develop more physical strength to thrive in the Premier League.

Regarding the defender’s potential cost, Transfermarkt estimates Hato’s transfer value at €22 million. However, given the interest from multiple top clubs, it’s likely that the price will rise.
