In a recent interview with Fox Sports Netherlands (translated by football-oranje.com), Stade Reims centre-forward Kaj Sierhuis shared that his dream has always been to play for Liverpool when he said, “The Premier League has been a dream all my life. I love the English football culture, the full stadiums and the experience of a day going to football is the best thing there is. Liverpool has been my favourite club since childhood. It will be a dream to ever earn that.”
Sierhuis’ Impressive Rise In Recent Years
The 21-year-old is a product of the Ajax youth academy but had decided to make a permanent switch to Reims at the beginning of this calendar year. He has a decent scoring record for his previous club and has been responsible for putting in some eye-catching displays for them so far.
Sierhuis has featured in 16 league matches for Erik ten Hag’s side this term, scoring six goals and providing three assists across all competitions. However, he is yet to score or assist his first goal for Reims after making only one substitute’s appearance for his new employers before the football world came to an abrupt halt due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
The Athens-born talent has also represented the Netherlands at various youth levels and is currently an important member of his nation’s Under-21 set-up. He has scored two goals in seven matches for them so far. A future move to Liverpool could give Sierhuis the platform to showcase his skills and catch the attention of Ronald Koeman so that he can earn a senior cap for the Dutch national team someday.
What Are The Dutch Youngster’s Strengths and Weaknesses?
Sierhuis makes up for his lack of mobility by using his strength to get into some promising areas in the final third. He doesn’t mind running the channels and is also not afraid to put in a tireless shift as a centre-forward up top. The Dutch whizkid has managed to contribute by scoring some vital goals for Ajax this season and has also shown that he can be a creative presence by earning a few assists as well. He is gradually transforming himself into a prolific finisher and usually packs a lot of power with his shot attempts.
Should Klopp Launch A Move For Sierhuis In The Future?
There is no doubt that Sierhuis is only getting better with each season, but he is still quite raw, and one can argue whether he is too inexperienced to play for a top club like Liverpool at the moment. However, if Jurgen Klopp is looking for a young forward, who can boost his youth ranks and challenge for a sporadic role in his first-team squad, then Sierhuis could be a wise option for the German head coach in the long-run.
Furthermore, the presence of other Dutch players such as Georginio Wijnaldum, Virgil Van Dijk and Sepp van den Berg could make life easy for the Reims starlet if he ends up making a dream move to Anfield in the coming years. All in all, the Reds should consider launching an offer for the Dutch whizkid as his transfer price might go up based on his progress in the French top-flight.
