Southampton Report Liverpool For Alleged Illegal Virgil Van Dijk Approach

Van Dijk was said to have impressed Klopp by stopping Liverpool's forwards in a calm and composed way during a 0-0 draw at St Mary's last November.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool have all been credited with serious interest in the former Celtic defender across the past few months, but Liverpool have been leading the race as of late if media gossip is to be believed.

Liverpool face a possible Premier League investigation over their pursuit of Virgil van Dijk.

Recent reports suggest the 25-year-old prefers a move to Anfield, though, and Gerrard would welcome the Netherlands worldwide with open arms.

The transfer row is the second this year involving Liverpool, who received a two-year ban on signing Academy players from other English clubs after accepting they made an illegal approach for a 12-year-old attached to Stoke City.

Asked if he would like to see the Netherlands global at Liverpool, former club captain Gerrard told the Daily Mail: "I'd love to see him in a red shirt".

Cape Town - Southampton stopper Virgil van Dijk has chosen Liverpool as his preferred destination this summer, according to several reports. Liverpool have signed a number of players from Southampton such as defenders Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne, and midfielders Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane.

Now the story had taken on a fresh dimension, with Klopp thrust into the centre of the controversy amid widespread rumours claiming he met Van Dijk for transfer talks in Blackpool.

Chairman Ralph Krueger insisted at the end of the season that Southampton do not have to sell their top players and would not be forced into selling Van Dijk this summer.

But with Champions League football back at Anfield, it is a step up for Van Dijk who can now truly test himself among the elite in Europe.
