• Premier League Duo Remain in Hunt for Southampton Star as Summer Transfer Battle Heats Up

    News Sun 25 Jun 2017

    Despite issuing an apology regarding their pursuit of Southampton star Virgil van Dijk only recently, Liverpool are still in the hunt for the player – and while London side Chelsea are also interested in acquiring the player’s signature, if rumours are to be believed, the former Celtic defender’s preference is to join Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

    With the Blues wary of the player’s preferred destination, they may look to concentrate on other targets and complete deals for Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko and raise their bid for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

    But, if Chelsea retain their interest in Van Dijk, then a £60m offer for the Dutch international may well be in the offing; it might take a similar amount to prise Sandro away from perennial Serie A winners Juve, while Monaco will look to swell their pockets to the tune of £35.2m if Bakayoko makes his expected move from France to England.

    Meanwhile, Sandro’s teammate Leonardo Bonucci remains a long-standing transfer target for Blues boss Antonio Conte after the two worked together at both club and international level.
