Lovren gives Van Dijk question the short shrift as Saints man closes in on Anfield

Date Posted,June 5, 2017

Liverpool appear to be closing in on a move for in-demand Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, but Reds’ centre-back Dejan Lovren appears unmoved by the prospect of his potential new team-mate.

Jurgen Klopp looks to have pipped Chelsea and Manchester City for Van Dijk in what would likely be a club record move for the £50million rated Dutch international, report the Liverpool Echo .

Lovren was fielding questions during the club’s recent trip to Sydney when he was asked about the potential arrival of Van Dijk and the Croatian was not impressed with what he was asked.

Unprepared to answer questions about the Van Dijk transfer saga, Lovren walked away from a reporter.

“I don’t want to talk about that!” said Lovren, before ending the conversation abruptly.

It’s unclear for certain when the question was put to Lovren, but the defender is currently on holiday enjoying a post-season break, and it is likely the footage was filmed after the match against Sydney FC last month.

Van Dijk hasn’t played for Southampton since January after picking up a season-ending ankle injury, but the 25-year-old former Celtic star is back in training and is expected to be fit to undergo a full pre-season schedule.
