Virgil van Dijk's agent responds to transfer approach from Barcelona
Spanish giants Barcelona have inquired about the possibility of signing Virgil van Dijk from Liverpool but according to reports the defender's agent has ruled out the move.
Van Dijk had an outstanding season with Liverpool as he was instrumental in them bagging their first Champions League crown since 2005. The Dutch defender joined Liverpool in a £75m deal in January 2018 and has been linked with Barcelona in the July transfer window.
According to the Mirror's Chief Football Writer John Cross, Van Dijk's agent does not fancy a move to Barcelona, "Do not expect it to happen for a moment, but Barcelona made inquiries about whether Virgil van Dijk could be tempted to leave Liverpool.
"They were quickly given short shrift by the Dutch defender’s representatives. They did not bother taking it further."
Van Dijk is still enjoying his holiday and is yet to join up with his Liverpool teammates for pre-season after playing for Holland in the UEFA Nations League.
