Kuyt believes Van Dijk would suit Liverpool

Kuyt believes Van Dijk would suit Liverpool

According to Yahoo Sport, the south coast outfit value the 26-year-old centre-back at £70 million, and if the Citizens come knocking with that kind of cash, it could prove extremely hard for a club the size of the Saints to turn down. However, Southampton held their own during a protracted pursuit in the summer and didn't sell.

"I know Virgil", Kuyt told Sky Sports News. "But the spirit in the team and with all the players is good so we are going to find a solution". We are going to think about it, but not because John is in that position.

"I think it's essential that Liverpool strengthen in January, defensively", said Sutton during a Match of the Day Extra Q&A session. He has the right mentality and he is a great defender.

'He could do a great job at Liverpool but it's not for me to say if he would be an improvement or not.

The Daily Mirror says City boss Pep Guardiola will prioritise bringing in defensive reinforcements in the January transfer window, with Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi and the out-of-favour Eliaquim Mangala the only fit centre-backs at the Etihad Stadium.

In the end, neither of the 26-year-old's main suitors, Chelsea or Liverpool, were prepared to fork out such a massive sum, with Van Dijk left with no option but to remain at St Mary's for the 2017/18 season.

Liverpool have a long-standing interest in Van Dijk and the player himself if believed to be extremely keen on a move to Anfield still, despite insisting that he is fully focused on the task at hand with Southampton.

Will they finally land their man in January?
