​Gerrard urges Jurgen Klopp to bring van Dijk to Liverpool

Steven Gerrard claims that Southampton's Virgil van Dijk can significantly help Liverpool next season.

The Dutch defender is reportedly close to a £60m move to Anfield after choosing to join the Reds over Manchester City and Chelsea.

And Gerrard, who was speaking at an event in Belfast, believes the 25-year old will be a welcome addition to Jurgen Klopp's side.

"I'd love to see him [van Dijk] in a red shirt. I'm a huge fan," said the former Liverpool skipper.

"I thought he was fantastic at Celtic and I thought we should have had a go for him back then.

"It will cost us a few more quid but I think he is a piece of the jigsaw that would be very welcome and very big for this team."
