Liverpool have been interested in signing Dutch international and Southampton star Virgil van Dijk for a long time.
The transfer saga has taken many twists in the past two months and a major event happened yesterday as Van Dijk submitted an official transfer request.
The Merseysiders officially apologized the Saints for tapping up the player back in June and ended their interest in hiring his services.
The British sources have mentioned that the Reds are favorites to lure him because his preference is to move to Anfield.
Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp also claimed that he thinks (Sky Sports) that the 26-year-old defender will join the Merseysiders this summer. Moreover, former Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce told Sky (via Express) that he thinks the Netherlands star will end up at Liverpool.
Therefore, we can expect Virgil to join the Reds before the summer transfer window closes this month. Klopp may have to splash a club record (Express) 70 million pounds fee ($91million) to agree his signing.
