Liverpool fans left frustrated after failure to sign Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool failed to secure their priority target of the summer transfer window in Southampton captain Virgil van Dijk, leaving supporters hugely frustrated.

The Reds ended deadline day having made five additions, with Dominic Solanke, Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to be joined by Naby Keita in 2018.
