Who's next for Liverpool?

Sport Bild in Germany says Liverpool are still in contention to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Borussia Dortmund's deal with Paris Saint-Germain fell through.

Dortmund want Aubameyang's future sorted by the end of July and if no transfer can be agreed by then he will stay in Germany.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool player John Aldridge has urged Virgil van Dijk to go on strike to force through a move to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's side publicly apologised to Southampton and ended their interest in the Netherlands international earlier this month after accusations of tapping up.

But Aldridge believes Liverpool could resurrect a deal for Van Dijk if the player makes it clear he wants to leave St Mary's.

And one more line from the Daily Mirror, who claim Klopp wants to sign four key players this summer, after Salah.

The Liverpool boss has reportedly prioritised a central midfielder and centre-back and each could cost considerably more than the Egypt international.

Naby Keita is his top midfield target, while Leonardo Bonucci, Jerome Boateng and Kalidou Koulibaly are under consideration after the failed attempt to sign Van Dijk.

The final piece of the puzzle will be a new left-back to replace Alberto Moreno.

The Saints add more twist into Liverpool transfer target

Southampton have hiked up their asking price for Liverpool transfer target Virgil van Dijk to £75million, reports say.

That is after the Saints reacted furiously to Liverpool’s pursuit of their captain which lead to the club reporting the Reds to the Premier League.

Liverpool’s approach for Van Dijk is now being looked at by the Premier League, but there is no official investigation as of yet.

Van Dijk has made Liverpool his first-choice destination after rejecting interest from Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Liverpool are still confident they can seal the deal, but Southampton have informed them of a major change to Van Dijk’s price tag.

Southampton were initially asking for a fee between £50million and £60million, but now want a figure closer to £75million.

It is potentially a huge blow to Liverpool, but the Reds are hopeful Van Dijk’s influence can help turn back the tide in their favour.

Reports that Jurgen Klopp met personally with Van Dijk have angered Southampton and prompted them to contact the Premier League.

Van Dijk would be by far the most expensive defender in history should Liverpool pay £75million for his services.

The Netherlands international is Klopp’s No.1 target as he looks to sure up a consistently fragile defence.

The Liverpool Echo claim Southampton will make it as difficult as possible for Liverpool to sign their skipper.

Southampton want a bidding war and will encourage Chelsea, Arsenal and City to revive their interest.

Liverpool have a long history of raiding Southampton for their best players with Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne all former Saints.

Virgil van Dijk wants transfer to Liverpool

Liverpool are preparing to make Virgil Van Dijk the most expensive defender in the world after the Dutchman decided he wants a summer move to Anfield.

Now the Merseyside club will test the resolve of Southampton to keep the 25-year-old international, who is likely to cost a record £60 million should he leave in this transfer window.

Southampton have indicated they are ready to fight to retain Van Dijk and feel they can resist any offers.

Van Dijk is one of the most in-demand players ahead of the transfer window, which officially opens in July 1.

Chelsea and Manchester City have also been strongly linked with a move for the 25-year-old.

It’s a huge boost for the Merseyside club, who had made Van Dijk their top summer target after their leaky defence almost cost them a place in the top four of the Premier League and Champions League qualification.

Van Dijk will become Liverpool’s highest-paid player if the move goes ahead and can expect to earn as much as £200,000 a week. His fee is sure to eclipse the current world record for a defender - the £50 million paid by Paris St Germain for David Luiz in 2014.

The onus will now switch to the negotiations between Liverpool and Southampton.

Liverpool have become accustomed with dealing with Southampton every year for the last few seasons, securing Sadio Mane in 2016 having earlier recruited Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne and Rickie Lambert from the club.
