Liverpool Seriously Ready to Sign "Fantastic" $64.9million Player

Jurgen Klopp DortmundLiverpool’s weakest department is none other than their defense. Under the management of Klopp, the Merseysiders have leaked goals on consistent basis and that issue at the back has to be resolved if they are to have any chance of challenging for big prizes next season.
Jurgen Klopp needs to sign a solid central defender, who will lead the back line. One such player who has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield is Southampton star Virgil van Dijk. If reports in the media are anything to go bu then Liverpool seriously want to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.
Earlier this month, we covered a report (via Read Liverpool) claiming that the Dutch center half has verbally agreed to sign for the Reds if they qualify for the Champions League.
Moreover, Liverpool Echo reported on 9th May that the former Celtic defender is Klopp’s top transfer target.
Now, Telegraph’s Chris Bascombe has stated that Liverpool are ready to spend over 100 million pounds on new signings and £50million ($64.9million) rated Van Dijk is wanted at Anfield.
The 25-year-old center has been top class at the back for the Saints but a foot injury ended his campaign in the month of January. Southampton boss Claude Puel knows all about the qualities of the Netherlands star and wants him to stay. He stated (Star)

“He’s our captain and he’s important for us. He has matured and taken leadership on the team. He’s a fantastic player we know well.”

Not only is he strong at the back, he is also a threat up front from set piece situations. Virgil made 30 appearances in all competitions for the Saints last season and netted 4 goals. In your opinion, should Liverpool break their transfer record to sign him?
