“Buzzing with this”, “Our future captain” – Liverpool fans react to £75m Virgil van Dijk deal

Following the big breaking news surrounding Virgil van Dijk‘s £75 million move to Liverpool, supporters have reacted in delighted fashion.

Just as we were all sat around contemplating our horrendous food and alcohol intake over Christmas, a truly significant story broke on Wednesday.

Liverpool have confirmed Van Dijk as their first signing of the January transfer window, with the fee believed to be rising to £75 million.

The Reds tried their best to get a deal over the line prior to deadline day, having previously been forced to end their interest after Jurgen Klopp had met the Dutchman before contact had been made with Southampton.

Here’s how Liverpool supporters have reacted to the news, as the Reds potentially close in on one of their most significant signings in years…

“The money is completely irrelevant. We need to strengthen our leaky defence and it’s a step forward.”

“£75m is a ridiculous sum of money, but it shows we’re serious about investing big money…great news, seriously hope he’s worth it!”
