Ian Wright believes Liverpool FC should look to sign Tottenham Hotspur contract rebel Toby Alderweireld this summer.

The Belgium international’s future at the north London side is far from certain given his unsatisfactory contract negotiations.

Alderweireld has reportedly made it clear that he wishes to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.

La Liga giants Real Madrid have been named as potential suitors, as well as Premier League duo Chelsea FC and Manchester United.

The Belgian defender has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League during his time at Southampton and Spurs.

Liverpool FC signed Virgil van Dijk in a £75m deal from Premier League rivals Southampton in the January transfer window.

However, the Reds could be in the market to sign another centre-half to partner Van Dijk at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Liverpool FC should look to sign Alderweireld in the summer to team up with the world’s most expensive defender.

“I can’t wait to see Liverpool’s business in the summer,” Wright told Sky Sports’ The Debate. “I am so excited about that.

“They’ve got to get a goalkeeper. They need another centre-half.

“Get Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham so they can weaken them and Arsenal can do a little bit more against them!”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a return to the Champions League after a two-season absence.
