Liverpool set to Smash World Record in Sensational Transfer Deal

Liverpool set to Smash World Record in Sensational Transfer Deal

According to a report by Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are set to renew their interest in Virgil Van Dijk this summer and are prepared to shell out a record transfer fee of £60 million for the highly-rated Dutchman.

The Daily Mail now report that whilst Van Dijk remains Liverpool's priority, Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson is another target for the Reds if they can't land Dutch global Van Dijk.

And Solhekol says Liverpool are waiting on Southampton before making a mammoth bid for the centre-back.

Of all clubs, one may expect Liverpool know how to deal with Southampton on transfers, but they've managed to mightily upset the South Coast side this summer.

However, the statement did not completely kill speculation regarding a switch to Anfield and the saga took a major twist on Friday (21 July) when Pellegrino confirmed that Van Dijk was training alone after confirming that he wants to leave.

Van Dijk joined Southampton from Celtic in 2015 and has been an integral member of the Saints squad.

"Now he is not involved with the team because psychologically he is not 100%", he said. Chelsea and Manchester City are other clubs who have been linked with an approach, though they are all believed to be aware of the defender's preference to play under Klopp.

Leaks to the media about agreeing personal terms with Van Dijk seemed to be bragging from Liverpool, and Southampton went down the route of suggesting action over tapping up.

Van Dijk, who cost £13million when he left the Hoops two years ago, made 55 Premier League appearances last season and has five years remaining on his contract.
