Speaking after the hammering at Tottenham, Pellegrino said on leaving Van Dijk out, "We have to wait until January". Reports in the English media already suggest that they are close to agreeing a £60 million fee with the Saints for the Dutch defender.

Virgil van Dijk was absent again, and it seems like the club made another mistake in not selling him in the summer. With Javier Mascherano looking to leave the club after almost seven years with Barcelona, the Catalan giants will lose a key defender.

Further up the field on what may be a long afternoon for the Saints, Sofiane Boufal, Nathan Redmond, and Shane Long will be charged with injecting some counter attacking threat into Mauricio Pellegrino's side. This is the reason.

Liverpool are so close to having a great team as the front four of Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are as good as I have seen watching the club over the last 50 years. I can't control the market so we'll see what happens.


"In this squad, I have a lot of players that can play". The Telegraph reports that City want to bring Van Dijk to act as a back-up to Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones.

"I$3 hope for your sake no City centre back gets injured this week".

The Dutchman has fallen out of favour at the St.Mary's in recent times due to a loss of form, He remained as an unused substitute in Southampton's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea, while was dropped from the squad in his side's 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town.

Chelsea also remain interested and Antonio Conte had hinted that City's Premier League rivals should do all they can to stop City from signing the defender or risk City becoming uncatchable in the coming years in the league.
