14 July at 10:58
A former football lawyer, Daniel Vanderkamp claims that Liverpool and Southampton have re-opened negotiations over Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk. The French based Vanderkamp worked alongside the Merseyside club in 2015 when they completed the deal for Christian Benteke from Aston Villa and according to The Mirror, the South African claims that the 25-year-old’s move to Anfield could now be back on.
The Saints reported Liverpool to the Premier League for allegedly making illegal contact with the player which resulted in the Reds issuing an apology and stating that their interest had now been terminated. Vanderkamp however, tweeted that things maybe back in the melting pot when he declared that; “Got told things are moving along now with LFC and Southampton. I don't know if he's handed in a request, just that the clubs are back negotiating”. The tweet was then subsequently deleted.
Former Liverpool ace Danny Murphy has also stated that he believes an agreement is close explaining that; “I think the van Dijk thing is close. That would be a phenomenal signing”. Jürgen Klopp however, refused to give anything away when asked to comment. The German tactician stated that; “Am I allowed to talk about this? I am not!"
"Pretty much everything I could say would be a mistake. You or your colleagues wrote everything about this a few weeks ago. I was in Iceland by the way when somebody told me this was in the newspaper.Nothing happened since then, all good so far, so I can't say anything about this."
