Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told to sign FOUR new players after Virgil van Dijk

That is the verdict of ESPN FC pundit and former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop.

Liverpool will sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk for a club-record fee of £75million when the transfer window opens on Monday. 

“This is one piece in a five-piece puzzle in my opinion,” he said.

Who are Liverpool targeting in the January transfer window?

A back four and a goalkeeper, I think Liverpool need, to see them compete with the likes of City and United

“A back four and a goalkeeper, I think Liverpool need, to see them compete with the likes of City and United. 

“This is just one piece of that puzzle.”

Hislop is a fan of Van Dijk though and believes the Dutchman should be full of confidence on his arrival at Anfield.

“So I come in with at least that little bit of confidence. 

“He’s not taking over from (Steve) Bruce and (Gary) Pallister, he’s not taking over from (Rio) Ferdinand and (Nemanja) Vidic. 

“It’s (Dejan) Lovren we are talking about here, surely you feel ‘I could come in there and do a better job than what Liverpool have on their books right now’.”

Van Dijk could make his Liverpool debut in the FA Cup third round clash with Merseyside rivals Everton on Friday January 5.
