Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk’s proposed move away from Southampton dominated the summer transfer window, but the Netherlands international ultimately remained at St Mary’s past the August 31 deadline.

However, the 26-year-old has since then come out and said that he remains hopeful of a move away in January, while also backtracking a few weeks later, to suggest that a move to Anfield remains firmly in his mind, and as such could be something Klopp is interested in as time edges closer to the New Year.

Liverpool’s defensive problems have been well-documented for a while now, and they would surely benefit from someone as authoritative and defensively accomplished like van Dijk in the heart of their backline.

Thus, it’s a deal they must look to strike in January.
