Social media is always a good place to get a feel for how fans are reacting to the latest transfer rumours and it was groundhog day this morning, amidst rumours that Liverpool were poised to bid for another Southampton man.
Seemingly not content with snatching the likes of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne from the Saints, rumours have indicated that Jurgen Klopp’s men will move for Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk in January.
It’s certainly an intriguing one, especially given the fact that Liverpool already boast the likes of Joel Matip, Lovren and Mamadou Sakho at Anfield, and Twitter was split on their views of the potential signing.
Many questioned the authenticity of the claims but Liverpool fans seemed extremely pleased with the links, whilst others were quick to make the standard jokes on the Reds potentially raiding Southampton once again…
I'd swap Lovren for van Dijk, Just saying.

I guess Liverpool could get Van Dijk for free on Southampton loyalty card.

Don't see it at the moment, but going for Van Dijk would be a great move imo. Top defender, easily one of the best in the league.. #lfc

To replace Sakho but seems a bit odd, lovren and Matip got a good partnership going and van Dijk is a first team player ???? https://t.co/sW36vtQ2L3

Van Dijk would be a quality addition hope there's something in the link with him.
