Liverpool supporters have turned to Twitter to express their delight following the announcement that the club have agreed a deal with Southampton to sign Virgil van Dijk.
The deal for van Dijk will be complete when the transfer window reopens on the first of January and Liverpool have disclosed that their new Dutch defender will wear the number four. Celtic’s former defender was left out of the Southampton team that were beaten 5-2 by Tottenham at Wembley.
The 26-year-old has been a target for Jurgen Klopp’s side for a considerable amount of time, and the Reds were forced to issue an apology for their pursuit of the defender in the summer transfer window.
However, it seems that the club have finally landed their target, and anticipation begins to amass ahead of Van Dijk’s Liverpool debut. Liverpool fans have decided to voice their glee on Twitter having heard the news of Van Dijk’s impending arrival…
