Arsenal star Vivianne Miedema believes Feyenoord manager Arne Slot is ready to take the step up and manage Liverpool.

The Reds have identified Slot as their top target to replace Jurgen Klopp at Anfield after missing out on Xabi Alonso, who will be staying at Bayer Leverkusen next season.

Slot is keen to join the Premier League side at any cost and Liverpool is currently negotiating a compensation package with Feyenoord to secure his services from Rotterdam.

Dutch forward Miedema, who has over 100 caps for her country, has been impressed by Slot’s progress in the Netherlands, with her brother Lars also briefly working under him during his time at PEC Zwolle.

Although acknowledging that replacing Klopp will be a challenge, Miedema believes that Slot is ready for a new challenge in England and warns Feyenoord not to let him go easily.

‘I have no doubt that Slot is ready for the Premier League,’ Miedema wrote in her column for Algemeen Dagblad.

‘Although the timing to join Liverpool may not be ideal. Succeeding Jürgen Klopp is no small feat, considering his achievements there. I wouldn’t be surprised if Slot’s price tag is high. The transfer fees in football are already crazy.’

‘Actually, as a club it makes much more sense to pay a lot for a coach than for a left back. A coach is so incredibly decisive. Slot has proven this at Feyenoord in recent years. If I worked at Feyenoord, I wouldn’t let him go easily.’

Miedema is also a big fan of Slot’s style of play, believing that he will bring in players who ‘fit his vision’.

‘Feyenoord is a loud club, always with something going on. That will always be the case, but under Slot, there has been some peace as well,’ she said.

‘Under him, the club has regained prestige with the title, the cup, and a European final.

‘His presence in the media is refreshing. He is honest and exudes peace and security. His specific style of play appeals to me.

‘Playing forward and pressing, with players who fit into that system. He has pushed the club to sign players who fit his vision. Of course, Feyenoord will face problems if Slot leaves, but he has laid the groundwork for the club to continue.’
