Liverpool had a decent attack last season and so far they have managed to further improve the offense by signing Solanke and Salah.
The Reds were shaky at the back and leaked goals on regular basis but they have not managed to solve the dilemma as yet. Klopp must act fast and sign top quality defenders to improve his defense this summer.
Southampton star Virgil van Dijk has been linked with a move to Anfield for quite some time and the latest reports are positive for Liverpool.
According to an exclusive report covered by the Sun, the Dutch center half is ready to secure his move to Liveprool by handing in a transfer request to leave the Saints this summer.
The British source suggest that the former Celtic star is only keen on signing for the Merseysiders, who could still complete his move in a deal worth £60million.
The 26-year-old defender featured in 30 games in all competitions for Southampton last season and scored four goals. If he does end up signing for Liverpool, we can expect him to replace Lovren and partner Matip in Klopp’s starting XI.
Virgil’s current deal with the Saints will expire in 2022 and he is earning (Daily Star) £65,000-a-week ($85,000-a-week).
