Liverpool are watching AZ Alkmaar midfielder Teun Koopmeiners.

The 23-year-old is being weighed up as a potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, who seems set to join Barcelona when his contract expires in June.

Calciomercato reports the Reds reckon compatriot Koopmeiners could be a like-for-like replacement.

However, Roma will fight them for the goalscoring midfielder.

Koopmeiners acknowledged the Serie A side's interest after AZ Alkmaar beat Willem II on Saturday.

He told NOS Sport, "There is interest from AS Roma and we will see what happens. I will not go into any further interest.

"It's only logical that interest will arise since we've had such a good season. We'll see what happens. Though, it's not on the agenda yet."
