The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are already looking ahead to the January transfer window. It has been a mixed season so far for the Reds, but the expectations placed upon Jurgen Klopp’s men are very high indeed – and so improvement will be needed as the season continues.
Fortunately, then, recent quotes from Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino regarding Virgil van Dijk bode well for the Reds. As quoted by the Mirror, Pellegrino hasn’t shut down the idea of a potential exit for van Dijk in January – at the very least leaving the door slightly ajar for a potential move from Liverpool during the next transfer window.
Van Dijk, of course, is one of the Premier League’s best defenders, and given Liverpool’s poor form at the back this term, his arrival would certainly shake things up at the back.
A move, of course, won’t be easy, and even if Southampton do agree to sell it won’t be for anything less than a huge fee. That being said, the Liverpool fans over on the fan Reddit page aren’t worried about that. To the contrary, their excitement levels are uncontrollable at the mere prospect of van Dijk being available.
