The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been counting down the days until the new Premier League season starts and after hearing comments from Virgil van Dijk on the Liverpool website, they’re even more excited for the start of the 2018/19 season.

The Reds propping our bar up were over the moon when the big Dutchman signed for the club back in January and since then the club has gone from strength to strength. Van Dijk had the perfect Anfield welcome, scoring the winning goal in an FA Cup third round Merseyside derby against Everton and since then he’s played in a Champions League final for the club and helped secure a 4th place Premier League finish.
If the comments from Van Dijk are to be believed then things are only going to get better for the Kopites. The 27-year-old centre-back is one of the best in his position in the world and Liverpool splashing £75 million on him six months ago is looking like an amazing transfer now. The money being spent on players is spiralling and in a few years time it looks like the Van Dijk fee will become a bargain in years to come.
You can read our local Reds’ thoughts on Van Dijk’s claims he’ll get better here:
He’s been here 6 months and the change he has made to our club is an achievement already on its own. Been wanting a player like VVD since @Carra23 left. Worth every single penny of that £75m
