    Liverpool now appears favorite to land Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt in the summer.

    The Reds are rumoured to be interested in a move for the Ajax skipper, but reportedly in competition with Barcelona for his signature.

    Recent comments from Barcelona chief Jordi Mestre has however played down speculations that the Spanish giants are wanting a move for the Dutchman.



    Speaking to Sky, Mestre said: "I don't know why they're saying this [that a deal is complete] because [De Ligt] hasn’t signed.

    "[Gerard] Pique is evidently one of the best central defenders in the world, if not the best.

    "After him, we have players like [Clement] Lenglet, [Samuel] Umtiti and we've signed a very young player in [Jean-Clair] Todibo. The defenders we already have are of the highest level.

    "In De Ligt's case, we'll speak with the sporting director at the end of the season and we'll speak not about De Ligt, but about what they say."

    Mestre's comments suggested the Catalan club may not be in the market for a new central defender in the summer, which would leave the door open for Liverpool to swoop for their target.
