Paul Merson: “Liverpool will win the league if they sign Southampton defender”

Southampton fullback Virgil van Dijk

Arsenal ex-forward Paul Merson has said, Liverpool will win the league if they sign Southampton fullback Virgil van Dijk.

“For me, I think if Liverpool get together and go and buy Van Dijk for £50 million in January, they will take some beating,” he told SPORT.

“They’ve got the firepower going forward, I just don’t think they’ve got it at the back.

“I know they’ve done it this season so far, but defensively they aren’t going to be good enough against the big teams.

“But if they can go out and get Van Dijk, I think £50 million, that nearly wins you the Premier League.”
