3 – Virgil van Dijk
This has been the story of the summer and it could conclude in the final days of the transfer window with Liverpool finally getting their man. The Dutch defender wants the move, but Southampton are trying to block it. Surely such a valuable asset will not be left to rot in the reserves for a season though, his value will only drop and why keep an unhappy player? If Liverpool offer big money in the closing stages of the window then I could see this one happening.
Southampton’s official stance is that the player is not for sale, but according to the latest reports, Liverpool are prepared to pay £70million for the player, such a huge amount would surely convince Southampton to part with their main man. Arsenal and Chelsea are also said to be interested, with the Gunners linked with a player plus cash deal involving Theo Walcott.
