Liverpool signing Southampton’s best players has been a common theme over the course of the past few summers, so any time they are aligned with a new Saint, Reds fans’ ears here in the Transfer Tavern perk up, which has certainly been the case with talk of Virgil van Dijk today.

Football Whispers claim that the Merseyside club are keen for the Dutchman to follow Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne and Sadio Mane north from St Mary’s Stadium to Anfield, with talks between the clubs and the player’s representatives having already taken place.
