Southampton star says the club will welcome back van Dijk

Southampton star Virgil van Dijk and Leipzig ace Naby Keita are Liverpool targets

According to a report by Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are set to renew their interest in Virgil Van Dijk this summer and are prepared to shell out a record transfer fee of £60 million for the highly-rated Dutchman.

The Reds boss has been chasing the 25-year-old Netherlands worldwide central defender since the end of last season, but they dropped their interest and issued an apology to the Saints when accused of trying to tap up the former Celtic man.

Despite the inability to sign Van Dijk, Liverpool may well remain in the market for another centre back this summer, with Klopp looking to boost his options alongside Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan.

The 26-year-old Dutch centre-back, who has five years left on his contract at St Mary's Stadium, remains strongly linked with a move to Anfield despite the Reds" publicly apologising to the Saints when faced with a "tapping-up' investigation from the Premier League.
