Liverpool legend Fowler: Van Dijk? Time will tell if he's right signing

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is making no predictions over Virgil van Dijk's club record £75m deal.

But Fowler thinks £75m could prove a good amount of money to pay if he is the final piece of the puzzle Jurgen Klopp is looking for.

He told the Mirror: “Like all big-money signings, people will question the fee Liverpool have agreed for Virgil van Dijk and, of course, it's a lot of money.

“But a player is worth what a club is willing to pay for him.

“And, in this case, for Liverpool to get the top-class defender they clearly believe is one of the final missing pieces in their particular jigsaw, then it is worth it for them.

“Only time will tell if it is a wise investment and, in the meantime, the transfer certainly gives us the chance for endless debates."
