Virgil van Dijk signs contract, January deal agreed – Liverpool next two months in dream scenario

Virgil van Dijk signs contract, January deal agreed –

Liverpool have some big months ahead of them on and off the field ahead of the January transfer window. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping it goes something like this.

Liverpool can be very happy with the start of the new season. Pulling together well in the context of a major summer midfield rebuild and a VAR error that proved costly against Spurs, the side sit inside the Champions League spots and just one point behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at this stage. this is happening.

Liverpool will have a chance to establish themselves as title contenders over the next few weeks. Matches with Nottingham Forest, Luton Town and Brentford, with only the middle match away at Anfield, require a maximum of nine points to be achieved.

This would take Liverpool to 29 points – an amount it took until mid-February to surpass last season (only partly due to the World Cup break; this was after 20 games). The problem last season was largely inconsistency against weaker sides and Liverpool have the ideal chance to prove this in the coming months.

And, of course, the January transfer window will provide another opportunity to go even stronger. Here, takes a look at what else will be on the agenda off the pitch, as well as some of the key things the Reds can expect on the pitch.

Andy Robertson’s injury comeback

It remains to be seen how long Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson will be out after undergoing surgery on a shoulder injury, but the sooner he can return, the better. Meanwhile, Kostas Tsimikas and Joe Gomez are likely to get minutes at left-back and Luke Chambers and Callum Scanlon should get a chance to play in the Carabao Cup and Europ

Manchester City defeated and lost more points

While Liverpool cannot afford to take their eyes off the ball in the meantime, the heavyweight clash between the Reds and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, which kicks off the matches after the next international break, is drawing closer. This will be another early start, but it should be a game worth enjoying.

There is a possibility that Liverpool could go into the game ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League table given the fixtures coming up for both sides. But either way, getting some kind of result in that would be a huge boost for the Reds, and could potentially give a real indication of how far this Jurgen Klopp side have come.


Virgil van Dijk signs new contract

Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk is exactly where he wants to be at Anfield. Having just taken over the armband from Jordan Henderson, his early season form has been very promising.

Although he may never return to the full peak level of form he showed before the injury, with a decline last year, he has played at a very high level most of the time since then. There are very few players who are considered the best centre-backs in the world but he is one of them.

Working on new deals for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah will also be important, but Van Dijk should not be forgotten. All three of those key men are under contract until the summer of 2025, which is then the end of the season.

Liverpool have made January transfer preparations ahead of time
Fluminense are holding out on a transfer move for midfielder Andre Trindade despite a report from Football Insider claiming Arsenal are hoping to rival Liverpool for his signature. It could be useful to acquire Andre six months ahead of time, before potentially losing Thiago Alcantara when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Liverpool needed to bring in someone to play at the base of their midfield and took a look at Andre during the summer, only to find that Fluminense were adamant that he would not leave until the conclusion of the Copa Libertadores. The final of that competition, in which the Brazilian team faces Boca Juniors, takes place a week later on Saturday.

If Liverpool want to make a deal for Andre, there should be enough time to get it done between the end of the match and the opening of the January transfer window. The 22-year-old could provide a significant boost midway through the season by following the recent examples of Luis Diaz and Cody Gakpo.
