With so much drama happening around Virgil van Dijk since the beginning of the transfer window, it’s safe to say that fans have reached the saturation point and want a sure shot verdict on the whole issue soon.
The in-demand Southampton defender put in a transfer request 10 days ago in a bid to force his way out, but club Chairman Ralph Krueger recently claimed that he is ‘not for sale’.
The Dutch international was spotted in London and the rumour mill was back at it again speculating about an imminent move to long term pursuers Chelsea. But it should be duly noted that Liverpool also have offices in London.
A Liverpool fan met VVD while he was on a shopping trip at the British capital and he disclosed how the man himself subtly smiled when he was asked the million dollar question about a move to the red part of Merseyside.
A smile can mean a lot of things, but in the context of how everything has developed in the Van Dijk saga, it might indicate that a transfer will happen soon.
Either that, or everything is false, VVD will stay at Southampton and he just sarcastically smiled at everyone who has been wondering a move is imminent.
Only time will tell us the end result. Check out picture and the tweet from the fan below –
