Default Liverpool sign Virgil Van Dijk for £75 million

It's not long ago been confirmed and I'm not sure how to feel.

A lot of money but still a good signing. The midfield tend to push up abit too far trying to press leaving quite a bit of space for their opponent between defence and midfield. Add to that Lovrens indecisiveness and its no real surprise that they concede so many goals . Full backs tend to drop or push up too far often giving more problems for the center backs. This is how Klopp plays so hopefully with the right personnel the defense will improve but even when he was at Dortmund and had Hummels the defence was never the strongest so Liverpool fans will have to hope hes got it right.

"Not sure how to feel" Elated obviously. We've signed a fantastic centre back after years of begging for one. Who cares about the price.
