Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum, who’s hugely important goal against Middlesbrough on the final day of the season sent Liverpool soaring back in to the Champions League, will be hoping Liverpool are able to get a deal for his fellow Dutch compatriot completed.
Liverpool are prepared to offer Van Dijk £200,000 a week but the transfer fee could be a stumbling block, with the defender’s existing contract still valid for another five years. It is thought that Southampton want up to £60m for the former Celtic man, who arrived from Scotland for just £13m.
