Southampton make €15m + bonuses offer for potential Van Dijk replacement

Klopp says officials are hindering Liverpool

Klopp says officials are hindering Liverpool

The Gao family completed an 80% takeover of the club this week, which led to speculation that their stance on van Dijk, who has been targeted by Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, would be softened.

Virgil van Dijk is not for sale and will be welcomed back into the Southampton squad when he accepts this state of affairs, according the Premier League club's chairman Ralph Krueger.

All along, Southampton have done their best to block any deal, forcing an apology out of Liverpool for tapping up the player and then shrugging off Van Dijk's attempts to force a move by going on strike and handing in a transfer request.

But Southampton want to hold on to the centre-back and Krueger insists that is exactly what the south coast club will do.

The Netherlands global been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool this summer as well as attracting interest from Premier League champions Chelsea and Manchester City.

However instead of the Saints stopper, Evans, 68, believes that Liverpool need someone more in the mould of Anfield hero Jamie Carragher, who can prove to be a real leader in the back line.

'Virgil is not for sale in this window and it's not personal, ' said Krueger.

"The first summer I was here five players went out and six went in, not counting academy". "Over the years, I don't give definite answes where there isn't a definite".

However, the Italian website report the Serie A side haven't even considered the possibility of Hoedt leaving Stadio Olimpico as Simone Inzaghi considers him an important part of his plans for the upcoming season, suggesting the Saints' bid wasn't enough to make them flinch. We can't only focus on one thing, but we know it's an important thing, of course.

"With all the knowledge I have today and all the information I have on my plate right now my answer is we are carrying our strategy through the summer and that's it".
