Virgil van Dijk has to win trophies for Liverpool, says Jamie Carragher

Virgil van Dijk has to win trophies for Liverpool, says Jamie Carragher”

Liverpool have officially signed Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

Van Dijk, who was also reported to have been interesting Chelsea and Manchester City, has finally secured the move he wanted after a protracted transfer saga reached its end.

Van Dijk will complete a move to Liverpool on January 1 after the club agreed a £75m deal to sign the Netherlands global from Southampton.

But the move fell through when Liverpool were forced to make a public apology after being accused of making an illegal approach for the player.

The newspaper sports writer said van Dijk would be paid a weekly salary of 180,000 pounds (242,000 U.S.dollars).

The 26-year-old has been on the sidelines again of late, with Puel's successor Mauricio Pellegrino opting not to use the centre-back amid speculation over his future.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has remained determined to sign Van Dijk as he tries to shore up a leaky defence that has fatally damaged Liverpool's Premier League title ambitions.

An official announcement from both clubs has been made with the deal to be concluded on January 1.

Many Saints fans will be disappointed to let yet another top player slip through their fingers to Liverpool - following the departures of Sadio Mane, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and the now-retired Rickie Lambert.

Van Dijk was absent as Southampton were battered 5-2 by Tottenham at Wembley on Boxing Day and he has not played since Saints' December 13 defeat to Leicester City.

"Thank you for all the messages of support".

Liverpool had offered around £60 million for the defender in the close-season and former Manchester United star Gary Neville questioned whether he will prove worth the extra investment. They have accepted Liverpool's bid for the rock-solid defender as he looks poised to become the most expensive defender in the history of the English giants. "But if Liverpool can stop their creaking in big matches when put under pressure then it will be a good deal for Liverpool as well because people will forget about the money that has been spent in a year or two if they can win trophies and get the defence right".
