Liverpool transfer rumours: Virgil van Dijk and Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool transfer rumours: Virgil van Dijk and Philippe Coutinho

We can not force the things and we would never get a centre back 'just because'.

Van Dijk joined Southampton from Celtic in a £13 million ($16.9 million, 14.4 million euros) move in September 2015 and has since emerged as one of the most imposing centre-backs in the Premier League. Klopp, though, seems happy with our current situation.

Aurier, a powerful Ivorian full-back, has shown flashes of his enormous potential during his 3 years with PSG, though a number of disciplinary problems off the pitch have seen the 24-year-old slip down the pecking order in the French capital, with Thomas Meunier having firmly established himself as the club's first-choice right-back this past season.

Van Dijk also accuses Southampton of leaking their side of stories to make him look unprofessional. Then you win a prize!

Curry, who has twice won the NBA's Most Valuable Player award, said: 'To keep it together after a shaky start was a proud moment. Not surprisingly, van der Walt subsequently tweeted that he was "only joking" about that, but he did praise Curry for his play.

"Joe is in a really good way but it was not his day (against Athletic Bilbao)". The transfer market is open until August 31. "It's hard how it is". The club's intention is to impose a sanction against me of a fine equivalent to two weeks wages, which I will be appealing.

"It doesn't work. I don't see it (the defence) as a concern". We could play tomorrow. In theory, that's a lot of money for City to spend on a backup center-back already having Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones in the squad, but Van Dijk is arguably better than all of them except Kompany. Southampton defender says he has handed in a transfer request to leave the English Premier League club, expressing frustration that interest from "multiple top clubs have been consistently rebuffed".

Liverpool have registered poor numbers at defending set-plays in recent seasons.

The 26-year-old put pen to paper on a six-year deal just last season but has decided the lure of a big club and the prospect of Champions League football is too much to resist and is trying to force a move away.
