So today, we are talking on Liverpool new signing Virgil van Dijk. Sound odd, but year, he was linked with a move to Arsenal some few days ago and it appears he would be an upgrade on the likes of Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Mohamed Elneny and even injured Santi Cazorla.
But unfortunately, the Merseyside stole the show by hijacking Arsenal’s move for the Dutchman in a world-record £75 million fee and now according to Premier League official Twitter Handle as shown below, he would be given the Squad Jersey No.4 previously donned by Sami Hyypia, Alan Jansen and Jason McAteer. The most recent Liverpool star to own the No.4 shirt was Kolo Toure, who was immensely popular with the Anfield faithful. You can check out the pictures here….
Well, with that being said, the window is open now and Arsenal are yet to make any signings but have been linked with many players across Europe with the latest being Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, which report claims Arsenal are ready to reignite interest to sign the Algeria international.
That will be all for now. Thanks reading. COYG!!!
