Arsenal fans are hit with bad news in the Football Transfer Tavern as talkSPORT have revealed that Celtic have warned the Gunners that Virgil van Dijk ‘will be very expensive’.
It has been well discussed by punters in the tavern that Arsene Wenger is chasing the Celtic defender but the Gunners hoped they would be able to poach the 23-year-old for a small price in comparison to his ability.
But that will not be the case as Arsenal are amongst several clubs who are interested and the Scottish champions are willing to make them fight for the Dutchman’s services.
Ronny Deila made this quite clear in a recent press conference and claimed that the interested clubs will have to pay big money to land his prized asset.
“It will not be a surprise for me if there is interest in Van Dijk in January, but he will be very expensive,” said Deila.
“Van Dijk is a fantastic player who keeps on improving and I hope he stays with us.”
