As per reports in the English press this afternoon, La Liga giants Barcelona are ready to battle Liverpool for the signature of Southampton central defender Virgil Van Dijk.

According to the Mirror, scouts from the Catalan club monitored the 26-year-old during Holland clash against Sweden last week and Barcelona are now weighing up the opportunity of tabling an offer for the centre-back during the January transfer window.

The Netherlands worldwide was heavily linked with a move to the Anfield outfit in the summer transfer window.

The Netherlands worldwide was a target for the Reds during the summer, only for a rumoured £50m deal to break down because of an illegal approach.

Cambridge Investment Research Advisors Inc decreased Kinder Morgan Inc Del ( KMI ) stake by 9.22% reported in 2017Q2 SEC filing. Finally, San Francisco Sentry Investment Group CA lifted its stake in shares of Kinder Morgan by 0.8% in the 1st quarter.

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has been easing him back into proceedings but it looks like the Liverpool transfer target still needs to get up to speed.

Southampton are likely to be more willing to sell Van Dijk to a club elsewhere in Europe rather than a Premier League rival.

Manchester City had also asked to be kept informed of any developments regarding Van Dijk's future and Chelsea were in the hunt for him over the summer.

The Anfield outfit still desperately need to bolster their leaky defence, and Van Dijk was linked again with Liverpool recently when he hinted at a potential January departure from St Mary's Stadium in an interview with Fox Sports (via the Evening Standard's Jack Rosser).
