European giants join rivals in hunt for Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk

Virgil Van Dijk is facing an uncertain future at Liverpool.

The commanding Dutch centre-back has just one year left on his deal, and with Jurgen Klopp set to depart at the end of the season, the Liverpool captain could follow.

And although incoming boss Arne Slot will want to kick off his Anfield career with Van Dijk, until the defender reaches an agreement to extend his contract, his future will be speculated.

Liverpool transfer news: Bayern Munich latest club to want Virgil Van Dijk

Already linked with a lucrative move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Qadsiah and interest coming from Borussia Dortmund, it is obvious the 32-year-old won’t be shy of suitors if he does decide to leave Merseyside in search of a new challenge.

Virgil Van Dijk could leave Liverpool this summer if he does not renew his contract.

And according to a recent report from Fichajes, another club has entered the mix.

Fellow Champions League semi-finalists Bayern Munich have reportedly included the former Celtic man on their summer shortlist and are keeping a close on his contractual situation.

The Bavarians are in a similar position to Liverpool. Thomas Tuchel is confirmed to be leaving, but his successor has yet to be named. It is unlikely that Van Dijk would give the green light to any transfer until the manager’s identify is known.

Therefore, if Bayern are serious about recruiting one of Europe’s most experienced defenders, they must act quickly in their hunt for a new manager.
