Liverpool: Van Dijk not daunted by huge transfer fee

Liverpool: Van Dijk not daunted by huge transfer fee

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk insists the £75m price tag is a big compliment to his hard work, and does not make him nervous.

The 26-year-old made 80 appearances in two-and-a-half seasons at Southampton and was a major target for leading Premier League clubs last summer.

Redknapp however feels that Klopp's side did the right thing to sign Van Dijk, who is regarded as one of the best defenders in the Premier League and he feels that they are now likely to end up finishing in the top four this season. However, their resolve to get Van Dijk remained and the defender stayed patient before eventually signing for a larger fee of £75million.

When asked why he chose Liverpool, the Netherlands worldwide said: "I think the size of the club, the fans, the players, the manager, the whole package here is fantastic". The German club maintain the stance of not letting their prized asset leave in January but Liverpool are still preparing for talks to bring the player, who is ready to move to Anfield now.

Liverpool announced the signing on the 1st of January and the Dutchman made his dream debut in the FA Cup against Everton at Anfield, scoring the victor to send the Reds into the fourth round.
