The Old Lady have targeted Liverpool’s defender, Virgil Van Dijk. If Liverpool win Premier League, the Dutch defender will be free to face a new challenge. Juve will do their best to take this chance.
The club is actively getting ready to gain their main transfer target. But Juventus is not alone in this competition. Ajax, Chelsea, and Manchester City have also expressed their interest in the defender. So the offer must be tempting.
According to some reliable sources, the Italian side is preparing a vast £150m bid for Van Dijk. This is an incredible offer for the defender. If the negotiations finish successfully, Virgil Van Dijk once again will become the most expensive defender of all time.
Virgil Van Dijk – the most desired transfer target
In 2017 Liverpool paid the reported £75m fee for the Dutch defender. It was the highest fee in football history to be paid ever for a defender.
Since he joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2017, Van Dijk has already helped them win all three championships, including the Champions League, the Super Cup, and the Club World Cup.
His strong physical structure, along with his height and excellent playing skills, make Van Dijk so attractive target for the clubs. In almost all of his matches, the defender is usually among the players to watch.
In 2018/19, the Dutchman was named as ‘Player of the Year’ of PFA Players and PL Player of the Year as well.
You may have also noticed that the Dutchman has improved his skills from last season. That’s why he becomes a more and more desired transfer target for the leading clubs.
Virgil Van Dijk is recognized as a ‘steel defense’ for Liverpool. Juve hopes, the ‘giant’ defender will do the same for ‘Serie A’ giants as well.
