Vigril Van Dijk is in the midst of a transfer storm amid recent speculation regarding his long-term future.
Both Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the 25-year-old this January to shore up their defence for the Premier League run-in.
You can understand why Van Dijk has so many suitors, a series of commanding displays since his 2015 move from Celtic has seen him become one of the most talked about players in the league, and even nail down a starting spot for his country.
Van Dijk played a pivotal role in a side that went on a run of 6 Premier League games without conceding a goal last season, as well as earlier this year. He’d surely improve a United defence that is looking shakier by the week, with the 4-0 defeat by Chelsea still fresh in the players’ minds.
The same can be said for free-scoring Liverpool, who could really use the strength of the 25-year-old at the back to round of their team and push all the way for the Premier League title this term.
But why should the towering Dutchman leaving the Saints? He clearly has a good thing going on there and the upheaval of another move in such a short space of time could prove detrimental for him.
With Van Dijk’s long-term future very much up in the air, here are THREE reasons why he should snub United and Liverpool and stick with the Saints this January.
