The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their club to sign a defender this summer, and it appears as though Jurgen Klopp is of the same opinion…
According to the Daily Star, Jurgen Klopp remains keen to Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk – despite recent comments from Claude Puel suggesting that the Dutchman will remain with the club this summer. Indeed, the Daily Star notes that should the Reds cough up a big chunk of change, the Saints may have little power to resist a move.
This news has delighted the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern, with many fans confident that Virgil van Dijk would be perfect for their side.
Powerful in the air, comfortable with the ball at his feet and a leader at the back, it is hard to dispute the sentiment that van Dijk would seriously improve Liverpool’s chances at the back. Our landlord thinks that a partnership with Dejan Lovren could be unstoppable.
Of course, the Reds will be needing all the defensive strength they can muster over the coming weeks, as Jurgen Klopp looks to steer his side to a top-four finish. Failure to beat Southampton over the weekend has certainly put a dent in those hopes, so the Reds will need to improve.
