Van Dijk’s compatriot and Lazio defender Stefan De Vrij is certainly the kind of player that Liverpool need at the back.
A rugged no-nonsense defender, who is strong in tackles and equally adept in the air, the 25-year old has been a rock at the back for the Italian club. His reading of the game allows him to make crucial interceptions to nip the attacks in the bud and he is adept at distributing the ball out of the back accurately too. A mainstay at the back for Lazio for almost three years now, his experience in the Italian top division could be a great asset.
De Vrij’s contract too is set to expire at the end of the next season and as a result could be available on the cheap. With Champions League football an almost certainty for Liverpool, tempting him to move to Anfield wouldn’t be a problem either.
