Liverpool Agree Deals worth £126.5million to Secure Signing

Liverpool tried to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in the summer transfer window but the Saints did not let their player depart.

Now, the Reds have finally got their man. Last night, the Merseysiders confirmed that they have agreed deals with Southampton and the Dutch defender to secure his signing, which will come into effect when the winter transfer window opens on Monday.

This means that the 26-year-old star will be eligible to play for Liverpool when they face Burnley on New Year’s Day.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Liverpool have agreed deals worth £126.5million to seal the signing of the former Celtic center half.

As per the Guardian, Liverpool have agreed £75million fee with the Saints and a five and a half year contract worth £180,000-a-week (£51.5million until June 2023) with the Netherlands defender.

Virgil is one of the best central defenders in the Premier League. He was in top class form for the Saints in the last campaign but suffered a foot injury that made him miss the second half of the campaign.

This season, he has featured in 12 league games for the Saints and in all fairness, his form has not been good. In your opinion, is Van Dijk good enough to solve the ongoing defensive dilemma at Anfield?

    I’d prefer a full industrial skip to Lovren but now I want to see Gomez partnering van Dijk and then if we need a new RB then so be it. Can’t keep rotating average keepers, we need to accept that Mignolet will ALWAYS make mistakes and that Henderson, whilst not questioning his effort, is NOT a defensive midfielder.
    I think the Ox will settle nicely and already prefer him to Wjnaldum! Glad to know Keita is coming as well! now need to sort out Coutinho situation . . . if he stays, great, if he goes then Draxxler to come in!
