With the season reaching boiling point, you would expect all eyes in Liverpool to be focused on finishing in that top four, however, with the transfer market as competitive as it is, thoughts are beginning to turn to the summer.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, the Reds are now prepared to enter the race to land a deal for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is to be given serious financial backing by the board at Anfield as they look to continue their progression under the German.

However, they are far from assured a deal with Van Dijk. The Saints have reiterated time and again their desire to keep the £60m rated defender, whilst according to the reoprt Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton are all interested, with Koeman keen on a reunion with the Netherlands international.

The former Celtic man has been ruled out for the season after injuring his ankle in a 3-0 win over Leicester earlier this season, however, then his performances had him already crowned Player of the Season at St. Mary’s.
