If Southampton show willingness to do business in the future, Liverpool will move for Virgil van Dijk ‘in a heartbeat,’ according to The Daily Mail.
The Reds pursuit of the 26-year old centre-back ended in tatters back in June after the Saints accused the Anfield club of tapping up the Dutch international and reported them to the Premier League.
Despite FSG releasing a statement clearly stating all interest had been dropped for Van Dijk, the feeling amongst Reds supporters is Klopp will sanction a big-money move for his top defensive target.
According to Dominic King of the Daily Mail, Liverpool did at other alternatives but were happy to let Davinson Sanchez leave Ajax to join Tottenham and had no interest in paying the money Napoli wanted for Kalidou Koulibaly.
Van Dijk has admitted he has ‘no regrets’ over his behaviour this summer and that he hopes a chance to leave Southampton could emerge in January.
Speaking to Fox Sports, Van Dijk told reporters: “I have no regrets.
“Of course, I wanted to go one step up, but eventually Southampton did not want to let me go, but you’re a professional, so now I’ll give everything to the club.
“Halfway through the season, maybe we can see what’s possible.”
