Van Dijk makes transfer request

    Van Dijk in action against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

    Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk has handed in a formal transfer request.

    The Holland international has been told that he will be fined two weeks’ wages by the Premier League club.

    And that has proved to be the tipping point with the Dutchman formally informing the south coast side that he wants to make an exit.

    Van Dijk has already verbally informed the Saints that he wants a transfer this Summer, but they have so far refused to let him leave.

    A move to Anfield to join Liverpool remains the priority for the ex-Celtic man, but Southampton are not keen to do business with the Reds.

    Chelsea remain very keen to sign the centre-back, while Manchester City are still monitoring his situation as well.

    Whether Jurgen Klopp can pull off a deal will depend on how strongly Van Dijk wants to Liverpool rather than a rival.

    It will also count on how determined Southampton are to avoid doing business with the club.


    1. Put the £60 mill offer in, show other clubs we have the spending cash finally, also it will show if fsg are 100% behind klopp

    2. I think he VVD ends up at Liverpool, he as done all he can now to force a move. It is now up to LFC to move quickly and show the supporters, they are ambitious. With such a commanding CB, he gives us options 3 at the back or 4 whichever klopp decides.People who are complaining about klopp, should remember he is world class.It’s our owners who are not.

    3. Yes, put in the offer – surely to god FSG have to accept that we want him for the CL campaign. Let’s hope that VVD wants LFC enough to sway the current ridiculous and childish thoughts of Southampton. FSG should back LFC and Klopp or sell up and ship out. Personally, I would rather they went back to America!
