4 players Jurgen Klopp MUST sign for Liverpool this summer

Virgil Van Dijk

Liverpool were heavily linked with Virgil Van Dijk earlier on in the summer and it looked as if they would secure the services of their top summer target, until they were forced to back out of any potential deal following an illegal approach for the player.

After this embarrassing episode, Liverpool’s interest in the Southampton defender has cooled.

But with the 18-time English Champions needing a centre-back, reviving a move for Van Dijk seems to be the sensible option.

The Dutchman was considered by many to be one of the best centre-backs in the league last year, before an injury curtailed his season.

A tall, strong and pacey centre back, Van Dijk is also comfortable with the ball at his feet, meaning he has all the tools needed to be a world-class defender.

He may end up costing in excess of £50m, but a deal for the Southampton defender would put an end to Liverpool’s woes in the centre of defence.
