Will Virgil van Dijk become a Liverpool player this summer

Virgil van Dijk LATEST Liverpool switch is STILL ON with reports he could force through dream move to Anfield

Kop boss Jurgen Klopp feared he had lost any chance of landing his man after Saints reported the Anfield club to the Premier League over an illegal approach.

Liverpool issued a public apology and the deal was off.

As a result, Arsenal should have one fewer competitor for Van Dijk's signature if they decide to make a move for him.

Jurgen Klopp is keeping his fingers crossed that Emre Can will sign a new contract at Liverpool despite interest from Juventus, according to reports.

Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren believes the arrival of winger Mohamed Salah will help them break down the stubborn defences which caused them so many problems last season.

That's the view of European football expert Gabriele Marcotti. "To be perfectly honest, I don't know if they have the tactical nous, whether they've got the capabilities to play 55, 60 games the way they play and be competitive". You say "but I have got the money" but they say "I don't want to sell".

It was said the deal is close to completion, but it is unlikely it will be confirmed before Liverpool fly to Hong Kong on Sunday for a pre-season tour.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager is also keen on signing a midfielder this summer and has identified Red Bull Leipzig's Naby Keita as his preferred target. It's not that we don't want to spend. "It is not about a number".

"It's not that we don't want to spend. It is all about doing the right things".

"What is the challenge?"

They also need to fill the left back position with a natural full back so that James Milner can play in his regular midfield role. Last week, Klopp had said he was waiting for Sakho to get 100% fit before he made any kind of decision regarding his future, but it's getting harder and harder to believe that decision hasn't already been made.
