Reports: Bouma talking to Reds today

A busy few days in store for Liverpool officials as the transfer window moves nearer to closing. It’s been made clear by Rafa Benitez that he’s looking to sign a new defender, and PSV Eindhoven’s Wilfred Bouma is reportedly going to be talking with Liverpool today. He’s also reported to be in talks with Aston Villa.

The player’s agent, Ger Lagendijk, says that his client is likely to be moving away from Holland before Wednesday’s deadline. He said: "It’s 90% certain Bouma will leave PSV. We hope to reach an agreement with a club on Monday."

Bouma is a Dutch international, who has played for PSV since he made his debut 11 years ago.

Expect more links from more agents as the deadline looms.

UPDATE: Reports now claim that Villa have agreed a fee with PSV and have also agreed terms with the player. He’s set to undergo a medical later today for the Midlands side.
