According to a recent report by The Daily Mirror, Liverpool to rival Manchester City for Aster Vranckx, the KV Mechelen midfielder, who would be available for as little as £1.5m initially, this summer. The same source has also mentioned that both the Reds and the Citizens have scouted the Belgian starlet on at least three separate occasions during this calendar year but could face some competition from Bayern Munich and Feyenoord as well in the race to land him in this off-season.
Vranckx’s Impressive Rise In Belgian Football
Vranckx came through the youth ranks of Mechelen before breaking out as a first-team starter earlier this season. He has enjoyed a fruitful start to his career in the Jupiler Pro League after putting in a few eye-catching displays at the heart of Wouter Vrancken’s midfield.
The 17-year-old has found the back of the net once and provided two assists in nine league matches for the Belgian outfit this term in all competitions which highlight how well he has performed for his boyhood club since the turn of the year. He has primarily been deployed as a box to box midfielder but is versatile enough to play a more reserved role as a defensive midfielder if required.
Vranckx has also represented Belgium at various youth levels and is currently a vital member of the Belgian Under-19 side, having made three appearances for them thus far. If the talented teenager can continue to improve his game with each season, then there is no doubt that he will make a significant impact for his country’s senior team in the years to come as he has the ceiling to become a future star in Belgian football.
What Are The Belgian Starlet’s Best Attributes?
Vranckx has a strong frame and is quite athletic in the way he operates in midfield. He can use his quickness and agility to cover a lot of ground and chase down lost causes at the centre of the park. The Belgian whizkid was also adding some goals and assists to his game before the football world came to an unexpected standstill because of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. However, he is still quite raw and would need time to develop into a top talent, so Jurgen Klopp will need to be patient with him if he can manage to win the race for his signature this summer.
Is Vranckx A Prospect For The Future?
Recruiting a midfielder of Vranckx’s potential will undeniably be a massive coup for the Reds and their long-term ambitions as a football club. Even though he might not be ready to feature for the Liverpool first-team week in week out, yet Klopp could use him in the cup competitions similar to how he has utilised the likes of Harvey Elliott and Neco Williams so far this season.
Vranckx is a star in the making and has all the skillset needed to become a world-class player in his position someday. He is a prospect to look out for in the future so the Merseyside giants will do well to lure him to the north-west of England before the start of the new season.
