Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool: Southampton defender 'keen on move to Anfield'
Virgil van Dijk has indicated he prefers a move to Liverpool.
Press Association Sport understands the centre-back has made his feelings on his future clear and has chosen Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool ahead of interest from Premier League champions Chelsea and Manchester City.
However, a deal is a long way from being completed as the Reds have yet to make a bid for the player, with Saints expected to demand a world-record fee for a defender in excess of £50million.
That would smash Liverpool's existing record transfer, the £35million they paid for Andy Carroll.
Liverpool have refused to comment on the speculation surrounding the player and their interest in him.
