Former striker Ian Wright has explained why Liverpool signing Virgil van Dijk was 'absolutely perfect' for the Reds.
The January window a few years ago saw the Reds eventually get their man in Van Dijk, with him joining from Southampton.
Indeed, he has become the world's best defender for Liverpool since arriving, and has been an absolute class act.
Wright believes that is down to him fitting our style as well:
“Clubs buy the wrong type of player without fitting them in. This is where the Virgil van Dijk signing is absolutely perfect. That’s why they would have paid another £25m for him – you look at how he was playing for Celtic, he is playing the same now.” #awlive [bbc] pic.twitter.com/n6kc4kYaFU
Anfield Watch Verdict
What can you say about this signing that hasn't been said already?
Van Dijk has been world class for Liverpool and remains the best in the business.
He's helped us win major trophies, and hopefully more will follow.
