Just when Liverpool fans must have thought that the incessant Virgil Van Dijk saga has come to a halt as latest rumors now suggest that the Merseyside club have made an offer for Lyon’s Emanuel Mammana as an alternative signing, some new developments, yet again, point towards Van Dijk’s interest in Liverpool.
An Instagram user by the name ‘philipuby’ was spotted liking a photoshopped image of Van Dijk in a Liverpool jersey. The story seems ordinary up till the moment you realise that Phil happens to be a close friend of the Southampton defender. His instagram account features many pictures of him with VVD.
As Van Dijk’s buddy, it’s quite a possibility that Phil may know more about his friend’s inclination towards Liverpool than anyone else and therefore, even though this is a very small hint, it still is enough to make the fans scratch their head and wonder if Van Dijk will join their team or not, yet again.
