Liverpool Agree £75m Deal For Premier League Star

Liverpool Agree £75m Deal For Premier League Star

Jamie Carragher has told Virgil van Dijk to emulate Rio Ferdinand after agreeing a world record £75million move to Liverpool from Southampton.

Van Dijk, who will wear No 4 at Liverpool, said he was delighted to be joining "one of the biggest clubs in world football" on Instagram.

'That is what Van Dijk has to do, take Liverpool to trophies and be Liverpool's No 1 centre-back for the next decade or so'.

Liverpool have reportedly had an astonishing £75m bid accepted by Southampton for wantaway centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool issued an apology to Southampton over the incident and the deal has been revived, with Van Dijk signing a contract for an undisclosed length of time that commences from January 1.

I can't wait to pull on the famous red shirt for the first time and will give everything I have to try and help this great club achieve something special in the years to come.




"Thank you for all the messages of support".

Under manager Juergen Klopp, they had been pursuing Van Dijk's signature in the summer before the Merseyside club ran into trouble and had to apologise for making an illegal approach for him.

In fact, the report claims that a deal could even be fully agreed before the official opening of the transfer window on Monday - with talks progressing massively over the last few days.

However, van Dijk's insistence on leaving - he was left out of the squad for the 5-2 Boxing Day loss to Tottenham - has forced Southampton's hand.

The fanbase is likely to be split on the decision to sell the Dutch ace in the January window with the Premier League's trapdoor just at arm's length, but the massive transfer fee will sweeten the pill.
