Southampton Report Liverpool Over Virgil Van Dijk Transfer

Virgil Van Dijk

Premier League

Southampton have reported Liverpool over their approaches to central defender Virgil Van Dijk.

According to Sky Sports News HQ Southampton reported the club to the Premier League earlier today. Liverpool had been believed to have agreed a fee for Virgil Van Dijk. The fee was in excess of £60 million, with Van Dijk earning £200,000 a week.

This transfer is one of many between the clubs in recent years. Namely Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne, but the Saints feel Liverpool have over stepped the mark on this.

Van Dijk would prefer a move to Anfield as opposed to Chelsea or Man City.

Southampton want the Premier League themselves to review if any rules have been broke in the process.

Van Dijk signed for the Saints from Celtic in 2015 for £13 Million. He has played 55 times for the club, scoring 4 times. It will be money well spend if they do end up selling him for £60 million.
