Van Dijk wants exit, Saints won't sell

Liverpool's English striker Danny Ings reacts to missing a chance during the EFL Cup fourth round match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield

Southampton have already threatened to report Liverpool to the Premier League this summer, amidst rumours of an illegal approach, but - despite initially backing off from their pursuit - the Reds have continued to be linked with the £60m-rated defender. This could threaten Liverpool's plan to land the player; but only if the player does change his stance of being interested in a switch to Liverpool.

"I think they played a really good move in signing him to a long contract because if the worst came they would get a lot of money for him, but I don't see it happening".

Van Dijk will meet with Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino today to discuss his situation and Gullit hopes a solution can be found.

However, Liverpool have tried to restore their relationship with Saints and reports indicate they would be interested in reigniting their interest should they be given any indication that Van Dijk is available.

Dark Tower Review: A Quick Draw Take on A Very Complex Story
There's one particular shot of McConaughey that is so misguided in how it's composed, I nearly burst out laughing in the theater. The upcoming TV adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series has found its showrunner in Glen Mazzara .

But despite Liverpool's unlucky spell with transfers, Thompson is still optimistic that Liverpool will end the transfer window on a high note with the potential addition of the Dutch global.

He'd effectively replace fellow countryman Virgil van Dijk, who is on the verge of a move to Liverpool. I can't say no more, because the situation is the boy is aside of the team because he don't want to play for us. "To have Sadio Mane on one wing and Salah on the other, to have such pace in the side and two players who can go past players in the box is such an asset".

"He will be a huge asset".

"The season Morgan kicked up a fuss pre-season, he stayed and was excellent", Le Tissier wrote on Twitter, in response to fan concerns over Van Dijk. Despite being injured for nearly the entirety of the second half of the 2016-17 campaign, the player is widely recognised as one of the most commanding centre-backs in the game and the injury has not caused any dip in the interest in his services.
