Al-Nassr have their sights on Liverpool star

Virgil van Dijk has reportedly received an opportunity to sign a deal that would force him to leave Liverpool and make him the best paid player in the world for his position.

This may be the last chance at a bumper deal for the Dutchman, who becomes 33 years old next month although he is still regarded by many as the greatest central defence in the game right now.

Virgil van Dijk has been a mainstay in the Reds defence since joining the team in the early months of 2018 and has revitalised a team that was previously conceding a lot of goals. After spending six years with the Reds, he has more than compensated for his £75 million price tag.

He has accumulated 102 clean sheets in 264 games in the Premier League alone. Furthermore, in 2018 he was named Player of the Season. Notably, in 2019 he placed second in the Ballon d'Or competition, losing to Lionel Messi in the end.

The Dutch Giant is approaching the last year of his deal with the Reds, but Marca claims the captain has been given the opportunity to become the best paid defender in the world.

Mentioning Al-Nassr as the interested party and their desire for Virgil to partner with Aymeric Laporte in order to defeat opponents Al-Hilal to the title in the upcoming campaign.

Al-Nassr have currently a number of well-known players in their ranks, such as Sadio Mane, a former colleague of Van Dijk's, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is perhaps the best player of all time.

Time to Depart?

It's known that Liverpool are still optimistic that Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah will agree to new contracts, but talks won't likely start until Arne Slot has finished his incomings.

Meaning hopefully, they won't commit the same errors as they did when they let go of veteran players like Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara, James Milner, and Jordan Henderson in the past.

In a previous discussion between VVD and Slot, the towering defender relayed, "I didn't feel this was a farewell conversation and I think he also sees me in Liverpool 2.0".

If this is the case, there is definitely cause for optimism, as many couldn't imagine how to start replacing the skipper, as his aerial ability in both boxes is essential to any set piece. Not to mention his leadership qualities, which allowed him to take on the role of captain after Jordan Henderson left.
