Southampton's Virgil van Dijk To Snub Liverpool For Chelsea

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has urged the Southampton star Van Dijk to move to Chelsea.
Van Dijk is widely expected to leave St Mary’s having been dropped for the last two games.

Southampton refused to let him leave in the summer. But his time on the south coast looks to be coming to an end.

Merson suggested earlier that Van Dijk will join Liverpool, saying:
“Yeah I think he will be playing for Liverpool by January.

"No I think it will be Liverpool. I think Liverpool.”
 However, Merson later claimed a move to Chelsea would be a better option.
“If you were Van Dijk you would go Chelsea over anywhere,” Merson said.

“Chelsea play three at the back so you’re always going to play and he suits that perfect to play in the middle of a three. He can play as well the lad, he can come out and can play.

“I don’t know (about Man City), (Nicholas) Otamendi I think has done outstanding this first six months, I think he has improved immensely.

“Stones has got to come back, if Kompany’s fit he’s going to play, I don’t know how long he will go on for but if he’s fit you’re going to play him.

 “Van Dijk will want to go somewhere where he’s going to play every week. If he goes to Liverpool every week.”
