Jurgen Klopp responds to transfer rumours about Virgil van Dijk

JURGEN KLOPP has kept mum on transfer talk related to Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool were targeting the Southampton centre-back over the summer until they found themselves embroiled in a ‘tapping up’ row.

Eventually the Reds were forced to issue a public apology over their approach to signing the 26-year-old.

But rumours have resurfaced that Van Dijk could still be on the way to Anfield as a touted move to Chelsea or Manchester City never came off.

But for his part, Liverpool boss Klopp won’t speculate on a move for the Dutch defender.

“Am I allowed to talk about this? I am not!” he told Liverpool TV.

“Pretty much everything I could say would be a mistake. You or your colleagues wrote everything about this a few weeks ago.

“I was in Iceland by the way when somebody told me this was in the newspaper.

“Nothing happened since then, all good so far, so I can’t say anything about this.”
