Last week there were reports that Van Dijk had indicated to Liverpool that he was interested in joining them, with an offer of close to £60 million ready to be submitted to Southampton. These rumours annoyed Southampton who were ready to report Liverpool to the Premier League for tapping up the Dutch international.

Liverpool have now released a statement apologising to Southampton for any misunderstanding regarding van Dijk, and confirmed that they would no longer be pursuing the centre-back.

This news will be music to the ears of Chelsea and Manchester City who are also interested in signing van Dijk.
