Arsenal 'plan £45m Virgil van Dijk bid'

Arsenal 'plan £45m Virgil van Dijk bid'

However, Liverpool are believed to still be interested in taking Van Dijk to Anfield, with some reports claiming the defender is only interested in a move to Jurgen Klopp's side.

Liverpool responded with statement insisting they had ended their pursuit, but after a Premier League investigation excused the Reds of any wrongdoing, it is understood they are back in the hunt.

Other sides including Chelsea and Arsenal have been paired with an interest, but it still looks as though Liverpool lead the race, and their previously strong relationship with Southampton could be important.

Ethics watchdog to release Mar-a-Lago visitor logs
The liberal-funded group sued DHS for information about visitors to Mar-a-Lago, Trump Tower in NY and the White House. The court has asked for "records of presidential visitors", but it is not yet clear how broadly that is defined.

Van Dijk would be a fine addition to Arsenal's defensive ranks, with Laurent Koscielny now the Gunners' only consistently reliable option at centre-back.

But with Wenger keen to bolster his defensive options ahead of Per Mertesacker's planned retirement at the end of this coming season, the Frenchman appears to be planning a swoop for Van Dijk.

Liverpool pursued the 26-year-old heavily at the start of the summer.

Southampton would likely prefer to do business with Arsenal rather than Liverpool and may even eye a player in return, with former Saints trio Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott and Calum Chambers all linked with exits.
