Manchester City Set To Fork Out £60m For Southampton's Van Dijk

Vincent Kompany

However, Manchester City are also believed to be keeping tabs on the defender ahead of next month and Le Tissier admits Van Dijk is likely to be sold to the highest bidder in January.

Having shown he's a capable Premier League level defender his price tag has now risen to £60 million, which the Citizens are expected to pay for his services sooner rather than later.

Virgil Van Dijk has established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League.

Spurs welcome Southampton to White Hart Lane this afternoon and get a bumper day of Premier League action underway. However, a fallout between the Reds and Southampton led to the player staying at St. Mary's. This is the reason. And with the transfer window less than a week from opening it's doors, Virgil Van Dijk omission from the squad does fire up the transfer rumor mill. Around him will be a lot of speculation and we have to wait to see what happens.

De Vrij has played 33 times for the Dutch national team and was part of the squad that finished 3rd in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Liverpool desperately need to sign a new central defender in the winter transfer window if they are to challenge the best of teams in the UEFA Champions League KO stages and to finish in the top four in the PL again.

Now Pep Guardiola has taken full advantage of this situation and has instructed the City owners to wrap up a deal for the centre-back, which they have promptly obliged.

The Daily Telegraph claims Man City are in talks with Southampton over a £60million move for Van Dijk, meaning Liverpool will have to look elsewhere.

"We tried to do the best for the team", said the ex-Alaves coach, who endured sections of the travelling Southampton support at Wembley signing "you're getting sacked in the morning".
