The report further adds that Liverpool and Ajax are currently in talks over a potential transfer this summer.

Anfield Watch Verdict
Antony's contract with Ajax doesn't expire until 2025, so the Dutch club are currently under no pressure to sell unless the Brazilian forces a move.
The 22-year-old joined Ajax in the summer of 2020 for a reported fee of £14 million from Brazilian side Sao Paulo.
Even if the Dutch Champions wait a year to cash in on him, they're still set to make a hefty profit.
Ever since joining the Eredivisie, Antony has impressed. In his first season at Ajax, he scored 10 goals and grabbed 10 assists in 46 games.
He improved on those numbers last season, scoring 12 goals and registering 10 assists in 33 games.
Antony is primarily a right winger, but he can also play as a left winger if needed.
Transfermarkt currently value the Brazilian at £31.50 million, a long way off the reported £70 million that Ajax want to sell him for this summer.
However, if the 22-year-old was to come in this summer, then he'd be Salah's back-up.
So I can't see Fenway Sports Group signing a £70 million player to sit on the bench for most of the season.
