Liverpool consider potential £63.4million transfer to replace injured Virgil van Dijk

Posted by

Liverpool are reportedly considering a big-money transfer deal for Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly if Virgil van Dijk’s injury leaves him out for a lengthy period.

The Senegal international is one of the finest in the world in his position and could be a superb addition for Liverpool, who may be about to face a defensive crisis.

According to Don Balon, Jurgen Klopp’s side could be prepared to fork out as much as £63.4million for Koulibaly if Van Dijk is out for as long as seven or eight months.

Liverpool have relied a lot on Van Dijk in recent times, with the Netherlands international proving a huge signing for the club since his January 2018 move from Southampton.

Koulibaly is the kind of player who could be ideal to fill the void left by Van Dijk, but it remains to be seen if Napoli would sell such an important player in the middle of the season.

Liverpool fans will surely just be hoping that Van Dijk’s injury isn’t as bad as feared, as even a quality signing like Koulibaly might struggle to truly replace him.

  1. I’m so sick of the var it’s like the refs have been working on not giving Liverpool FC any decisions and this new thing that linesman and referees are doing by hiding behind the technology and not putting up the flag can lead as we have seen to major injuries due to last ditch tackles, the challenge by Pickford and the last goal Henderson scored is not offside the refs are still not going to the pitch side monitor it’s ruined the game so much so that I know at least 5 people who are getting the sky and BT out because of var ,and no fans poor refs who are not fit enough or good enough 4 premier league refs failed there fitness tests for fiffa games they are from the 1league and Italy’s refs are only full time payed officials in Europe.The players are multinational so why don’t we have the best refs in the world instead of all English old boys club.Having some top foreign refs should be recruited by the premiership it would improve the quality of official football is the big looser today vvd, Thiago
    both seasons are over it’s time to get better refs and cancel var it’s not working for the game peno,s for the ball brushing accidentally now defenders have to put arms behind there back when blocking crosses for fear of handball.just some thoughts on the end of the beautiful game it’s a shame..
