Ajax have been looking for a replacement for Alderweireld and it seems they have found him, Ajax have been given permission by FC Utrecht to speak to Van Der Hoom.
Liverpool looked to have missed out on the Belgium defender after it seemed that Bayer Leverkusen had begun talks with the 24-year-old but their interest has now cooled, leaving the door open for Liverpool.
It is thought that 8million will prize away highly-rated Alderweireld from Ajax, with the Belgium admitting interest in moving to the Premier League.
There are reports today suggesting that North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both interested in signing Alderweireld, but Liverpool remain in pole position.
Liverpool are looking for one more defender that will be at the club for year to come but can also challenge for a starting berth for the coming season to add more competition.
Liverpool have been linked with both Ashley Williams of Swansea and kyriakos papadopoulos of FC Schalke 04 but have been priced out of both deals.
