Dutch defender Van Dijk not for sale, say Southampton

Southampton have all but ended Virgil van Dijk's hopes of leaving the club, with the club's chairman claiming he will not be going anywhere, and more than that, the defender will be expected to come back into the fold and try his best once the transfer window speculation has ended.

Liverpool have made a clumsy attempt to sign the Dutch star after the Reds were forced to issue a statement apologising to Southampton for their pursuit of Van Dijk earlier this summer.

Many have suggested that a new centre-back is the most pressing requirement after poor set-piece defending cost Liverpool the win, but Klopp is bluntly insistent that it is "all parts" of the team that still require strengthening. We can not build them.

"We are in talks and we work on all parts of the game".

"Now it is one out and two in, and this is who we want to become".

"I don't know if the Van Dijk lad is really verbal and is an organiser but if we were to have that sort of player, it would make a massive difference to the team". "We have to work on it because we did well in pre-season in this situation". We have said it a few times.

"I will tell you one thing - over the years we have spoken I don't give definite answers where there isn't a definite", he added.

"We can't only focus on one thing, but we know it's an important thing, of course". I don't feel comfortable but I know what to do.

"Are we looking still for players? Yes". But we were looking for players before Adam was injured. You can not be really prepared for situations like this but we have time.

"If they go and buy a No 9 and were to go and get Virgil van Dijk as well, I think that is a good trade for Coutinho". If I were sure, they would probably already be in or whatever.
