Top 26-year-old only wants to sign for Liverpool this summer

Virgil van Dijk LATEST Liverpool switch is STILL ON with reports he could force through dream move to Anfield

Wenger also believes that Dembele could replace Sanchez at the club, but he is also looking to boost his defence as he also prepares a bid for Southampton's Holland global Virgil van Dijk.

It remains to be seen whether Van Dijk's apparent desire to move to Anfield will secure him a move to Merseyside this summer.

The Daily Express say the French boss is wary of the speculation over Alexis Sanchez's head after he conceded his future may be away from the Emirates.

Virgil van Dijk's proposed switch to Liverpool is STILL ON, with the defending willing to force through his dream move to Anfield this summer, according to reports.

Wenger is also looking to boost his defence and is considering making a £45m bid for Southampton's Holland global van Dijk.

Liverpool were favourites to sign the 26-year-old but a transfer mishap left the Reds with egg on their faces as they were forced to apologise to the Saints for an illegal approach and risked the wrath of the Premier League as a result.

Southampton have sold some of their best players in recent years, such as Victor Wanyama and Adam Lallana, and it should not come as a surprise if in the end they do let Van Dijk leave for Liverpool.

Having already brought Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette to the Emirates - the latter in a club-record deal worth more than £50million - Wenger intends to push on in the summer market.
