Van Dijk fee doesn't matter because he's class: Klopp

A move to Liverpool will pose new challenges, especially given Klopp's preference for his team to commit its full-backs forward and leave the central defenders isolated.

A club statement said: "Liverpool Football Club can confirm they have reached an agreement with Southampton for the transfer of Virgil van Dijk".

The fee makes Van Dijk the most expensive defender in the world, but Solhekol claims the Reds were only willing to hand over £60m for him in the summer.

Van Dijk will complete a move to Liverpool on January 1 after the club agreed a £75m deal to sign the Netherlands worldwide from Southampton.

However, Warnock - who revealed that he had the chance to sign Van Dijk for just £6m while at Crystal Palace - insists that his current centre-back Bamba is more accomplished than the Dutchman.

"It is fantastic possibility for Liverpool".

I have my doubts whether he will be probably used, with the qualities of a natural defender Van Dijk has himself.

But it's hard . "I was happy from the first day about his involvement, about his attitude, and since then he became more and more a Liverpool player".

"He can play in different good teams and it is a good reward for him". At the beginning of the season it is hard for him because he wants to join another club, but now he will find his level.

"We can reinvest this money in our squad to try to be stronger", Pellegrino said.

"If you bring one player in for £100m and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney", he said a year ago.

"I don't know if it is the right price but for me he is a fantastic player, a fantastic defender".

"In those first six months he made progress and developed his play".

With Liverpool without Van Dijk, Puel is hoping the Foxes can end their four-game winless run in all competitions. They are a complete team. "We like the big occasion".
