Van Dijk To Strike For The Right To Liverpool Move

Liverpool are keen to land the Dutch defender but Jurgen Klopp withdrew his interest last month after tapping up allegations.

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.

Therefore, the Reds are hopeful that the Saints will opt to offload Van Dijk and pick up a £50million transfer fee to reinvest back into their squad as opposed to keeping an unhappy player on board who will not be selected.

Van Dijk has become one of English football's most sought-after defenders after a fine second season at St Mary's that was curtailed by an ankle injury suffered in January.

After earlier being sent to train on his own, today Liverpool target Virgil van Dijk has been left behind in Southampton as his teammates all head to France for a pre-season training camp and a handful of preparatory games for the coming 2017-18 campaign.


The 26-year-old has impressed in the Premier League since moving to Southampton back in 2015, so much so that Liverpool are looking to splash out a cool £60m or so on the defender.

It would be extremely hard for the south coast club to reject such a bid for their unsettled captain so a move to Anfield could be on the cards if Liverpool do make their interest official over the coming days.

The centre-half has been the subject of interest from Liverpool, who were forced to back off after Southampton protested over the Reds' unsolicited approaches.

Despite that, Pellegrino maintained that his relationship with Van Dijk was "excellent" and that the Southampton hierarchy had made it plainly clear that he would not be sold this summer.
