The Liverpool Echo claim that the 23-year-old has been discussed by Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman as an option as they search for a left-sided centre-half following Ramiro Funes Mori's recent injury set-back.
The Argentina international is recovering from a second knee operation and isn't likely to return to action until the New Year but the Echo's report also suggests that the Blues' management team favour a player capable of playing at left back as well given the lack of experienced cover for Leighton Baines.
Hoedt, who recently became a full Dutch international, was signed by Lazio on a free transfer two years ago after he left AZ Alkmaar in his native Netherlands. He has played 42 times in Serie A for the Italian club.
Meanwhile, another rumoured target from Italy, Jason Murillo, has reportedly turned down overtures from Everton, Arsenal, Tottenham and Stoke to join Valencia.

Funes Mori has done okay but has never totally convinced. I think we should be looking for a long-term replacement. Sakho would be a good buy if we could negotiate the price down.

I'm worried Rooney will be a moaning liability.

Is this the way to J Murillo?
Soz... Now don't be getting all saki over it!
I always thought Mason Holgate was an adultery website...

Browning and Holgate should be given a chance in the middle along with Galloway as back-up for the left or centre-left.

ps: I've said that if we sign Wesley Hoedt, I'm glad that his first name isn't Richard. Opposing fans would have a field day.

PSG need to sell off players to satisfy FFP. Therefore they'd be prepared to sell a first team player in Kimpembe, and keep the world class Marquinhos.
Kimpembe is 21. He's a ball playing centre half and he plays on the left side of defence.
PSG still have Tiago Silva and he has little resale value, and so they will keep their captain. They just signed Juan Foyth from Argentina, so, apparently they will sell Kimpembe.
Only issue is Liverpool are ahead of us in the queue, but they prefer Van Dijk.

Hoedt at least has the potential to become world class. Although he probably won't reach the absolute top, I do see him grow to at least the same level as Van Dijk in one or two years.

6'-3" tall & a good header of the ball (remember Per Krøldrup) Urgggg.
Funes Mori has never really set Goodison alight & is prone to mistakes, although rated highly in South America & Europe.
Funes Mori should fetch a good price in the January sales when foreign teams are looking to shore up their defences.

Having been impressed by the lad on TV I'm now firmly in the camp to bring him to Goodison.
I've always thought Van Dijk to be a good, solid defender but find the sums being written about him totally perplexing. He's not worth £60m even in a crazy market.
Has their been a Dutch media view on what Koeman is doing at Everton, Erik?

David, I actually thought when posting "you'll see he turns out to be the next Krøldrup". Moving from the Serie A to the Premier League seems to be a difficult one, enough examples of failures along the line.
