Rumour Mill: Liverpool ‘in talks’ over record transfer deal for Virgil van Dijk

 23 March 2017

It sounds too good to be true. It probably is. But one website claims this week that Liverpool have opened talks over a record transfer move for Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Van Dijk, the 25-year-old Dutchman, is seen by many – including Steven Gerrard – as the ideal centre-back signing for Jurgen Klopp‘s side this summer.

According to the websiteFootball Whispers‘ talks between the two clubs and the player’s representatives have already taken place.

Liverpool’s current record transfer is the £35 million spent on Andy Carroll back in January 2011 – although some reports suggest Sadio Mane‘s fee could rise to £36 million depending on clauses in the deal that saw him join from Southampton last summer.

Van Dijk is one of the hottest properties in the Premier League and won’t come cheap, so a fee around £40 million may be needed to bring him to Anfield to help shore up Klopp’s leaky defence.

It’s claimed that Liverpool are beginning talks ahead of a summer move to position themselves at the front of the queue for Van Dijk, who is represented by the same agency as Jordan Henderson, Nathaniel Clyne and Divock Origi.

Meanwhile, the same website claims Liverpool are also targetting Borussia Dortmund’s versatile defender Matthias Ginter.
