Liverpool could have an exciting arrival.
Liverpool have tried to tip-toe around it. Jurgen Klopp has done the best to evade it. Through every cajoling move, every plaster placed on the festering wound, the Reds efforts have been to no avail.
Yes the club still sit first on the Premier League table, however their recent run of poor form has been a dire indictment of just how greatly they miss their talisman at the back.
Virgil Van Dijk was the beating heart of the Reds. He could instigate attacks while also sweep opposition surges forward under the rug. He’d shrug attackers out of the way and he would bully his opponents.

Van Dijk was the ultimate wall and without him the club’s steely defensive line no longer looks as stable.
But there is a chance for resurrection. The January window has come at the perfect and paradoxically most imperfect time.
If it was not for the current situation around the world, the Reds may have already signed a replacement for the Dutchman who would be ready to make his debut against Aston Villa and play in the ultimate showdown in the Reds derby crunch match against United.
Nonetheless the Reds are still trying to valiantly pull off a deal which could ensure they alleviate the absence of Van Dijk.
According to reliable journalist Romero Agresti speaking on Twitch via HITC, the Reds have made an offer worth £9m to Bayern Munich’s David Alaba.
David Alaba is regarded as one of the best players in the world. A versatile player who was deployed at centre-back in the Champions League final last season and played the role with distinction.
The Austrian star has a wealth of experience which could be of immeasurable help to the club and it’s also what makes him the perfect replacement in the absence of Van Dijk.
If the Reds are truly interested in the Bayern Munich star, they should make their move now. Clubs like Chelsea and Real Madrid are also said to be lurking in the shadows ready to pounce on his talent.
At 28 years of age, David Alaba is in his prime, but he still has plenty of years left at the top.
