The Dutch defender is ready to hand in a transfer request, reports The Sun.
The Reds from Anfield are ready to spend big money on one of their prime targets this summer – Virgil van Dijk. The 26-year-old has been a subject of a lot of speculations that have led to dramatic outcome for Liverpool and Southampton.
The Saints reported Liverpool for using illegal approach to tap up their player, which made The Reds make a public apology stating they have no further interest in the Dutch defender. Latest reports suggest that van Dijk himself has set playing for Liverpool as his goal and is willing to hand in a transfer request to make sure he gets what he wants, according to The Sun.
Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp is a keen admirer of the defender as he seeks to strengthen Liverpool’s defense. Anfield’s back four has proved quite problematic for The Reds as Lovren, Matip and Klavan have been struggling with consistency.
