Watch Dejan Lovren storm off after question about Liverpool transfer target Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool fans may be desperate to get their fix of transfer rumours this summer, but Dejan Lovren remained unmoved when quizzed about Virgil van Dijk.

The Reds have been linked with a big-money move for Southampton star Van Dijk, with Jurgen Klopp prepared to go toe-to-toe with Chelsea and Manchester City for the gifted centre-back.

Liverpool are ready to smash their club transfer record of £35m to land Van Dijk, with Southampton reportedly asking for in excess of £50m for the classy Dutch international.

Lovren was asked about the potential arrival of Van Dijk – and the Croatian was less than impressed with the question.

Unprepared to answer questions about the Van Dijk transfer saga, Lovren walked away from a reporter.

“I don’t want to talk about that!” said Lovren before ending the conversation abruptly.

It’s unclear for certain when the question was put to Lovren, but the defender is currently on holiday enjoying a post-season break, and it is likely the footage was filmed after the match against Sydney FC last month .

Van Dijk hasn’t played for Southampton since January after picking up a season-ending ankle injury, but the 25-year-old former Celtic star is back in training and is expected to be fit to undergo a full pre-season schedule.
