Inigo Martinez of Real Sociedad apparently has a release clause of £28M in his contract. Maybe that's worth a punt to give Van Dijk a new partner, considering how poor Matip's been this season, and his injury record.

Exclusive: Southampton keen on Daniel Sturridge and ready to make audacious bid for Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/12/28/southampton-keen-daniel-sturridge-ready-make-audacious-move/

Considering how much we've been stung for by Southampton over the last few seasons, then a £15M loan fee seems reasonable.

Have we missed a trick with Toby Alderweireld, or could we still pull it off?

Apparently his contract runs to July 2019, with Spurs having the option of extending it for a further 12 months. However, there's supposedly a clause that states he will then have a release clause of £25M in the Summer following or that Summer (if triggered in the Summer) in which Spurs trigger the extension.

So if they were to try and trigger the extension to 2020 now, he could be bought for £25M in the Summer.

I hope Southampton have 'given us permission' to announce the signing.  ;D

If so, I wonder how much we paid for the privilege.

Liverpool confirm world-record £75m deal for Virgil van Dijk

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/12/27/liverpool-agree-world-record-75m-deal-virgil-van-dijk/


Insanity!!!!

Having been injured for the 2nd half of last season, he's not been the same player since returning to the team.
If that's down to his failed Summer transfer, you only have to look at Coutinho to see the right attitude. Maybe it's down to his injury. Either way, £75M is crass stupidity. A 25% increase on the rumoured amount we were prepared to pay in the Summer. Where's that come from?

Do we even know how to negotiate? Or what the word even means?

Surely we could buy a central defensive partnership for that, and whilst either may not be quite as good individually as Van Dijk, as a partnership, they'll be better than the resulting combination of whichever one of our poor centre halves Van Dijk gets lumbered partnered with.

Liverpool transfer news: Juventus make contact with Emre Can over January swoop

https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/896931/Liverpool-transfer-news-Juventus-Emre-Can-Jurgen-Klopp-gossip-rumours-contract


Let him go. Contrast the improvement and change in Oxlade-Chamberlain to Can. Can looks like a player who's always content with his performance and thinks he's far better than he is.

He's one of the players you thought would improve greatly under Klopp, but it just isn't happening.

Whatever he's asking for with his new contract, he just isn't worth. If he thinks he's going to get £100K+ a week at Juve, then he's deluded. I'd be surprised if he gets much more than he's on now.

The second half was OK, but we need to start games with the required level of performance.

Coutinho has definitely gone up a level this season. Shame the same can't be said of Can.

Happy Xmas Tes, and to your loved ones.

aye, I had similar smiles when I saw Leon Britton's name come up in the media.   ;D

Another Tory effort at hurting Liverpool. 

And another big embarrassing defeat!

Of course we need a centre half, a new goal keeper wouldn't be a profligate outlay either, and a defensive midfield option could be more than useful too, but the thing we lack the most is a leader.

We desperately need someone who can calm things down, stop the instant sagging of spirits and make sure heads aren't lost. Someone who can quickly quell any slipping away of confidence and get things quickly sorted and stabilised when we lose a goal, so the normal avalanche doesn't get under way.

Whether that's a centre half or a midfielder, it makes no odds. It just needs to happen.
