£50m-rated player reportedly wants Liverpool move

Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk wants to move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror.

According to the report, Van Dijk has told Southampton that he only wants to switch to Premier League rivals Liverpool this summer.

The Netherlands international defender has reportedly made it clear to the Saints that he wants to play in the Champions League, which the Reds can offer next season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side finished fourth in the Premier League last season and stand a chance of progressing to the group stage of the 2017-18 Champions League campaign.

Even though the former Celtic centre-back (reportedly) wants to switch to Anfield, Liverpool should not expect to secure the services of the 25-year-old on the cheap.

According to The Sun, Southampton value Van Dijk, who is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League, at £50 million.
