Liverpool completed their first summer signing by hiring the services of Mohamed Salah from Italian side Roma.
Now, Klopp needs to reinforce other key departments and prepare his side well before the start of the new season.
As far as the defense is concerned, Liverpool have been heavily interested in signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton and earlier this month, reports suggested that the Reds have won the race to sign the £60million rated ($76million) defender (Mirror).
However, not so long ago, the Merseysiders apologized to the Saints and claimed that they have ended their interest in the Dutch center back (via LFC).
Still, reports are constantly linking Liverpool with the former Celtic star, who is arguably one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
Yesterday, in a transfer report, Daily Mail mentioned that Liverpool remain keen on signing the 25-year-old star. Today, the British source once again stated that Van Dijk is still the Reds’ most desirable man to strengthen the back line and Klopp’s priority.
The Netherlands defender had an injury hit campaign with the Saints last term and he played his last game back in January. The Merseysiders leaked goals on regular basis last season and they need a strong leader like Virgil to solve the defensive dilemma for the former Borussia Dortmund boss.
Jurgen must act swiftly if he wants to get his man because as per the latest reports going on in the media, Chelsea are closing on signing the £60million rated star (Gianluca Di Marzio).
