The Dutch global finally secured a move to Anfield as the world's most expensive defender on Wednesday, with British media reporting it was a 75 million pounds ($100.88 million) deal.
Van Dijk was expected to join Liverpool in the summer but the Reds were forced to publicly end their interest after Southampton accused them of illegally tapping him up.
Klopp doesn't care about the size of the transfer because he is confident Van Dijk will plug the holes in Liverpool's leaky defense. Craig Burley explains why Virgil van Dijk will have a lot to prove with the microscope squarely on the new Liverpool defender.
Puel had Van Dijk as his captain at Southampton last season as the south coast club fought to keep the centre back at the club. "At Southampton it is impossible to bring in players for £80million or £50million". We do not make the price, the market makes the price and the first thing all Liverpool supporters should forget quite soon is the price.
The Netherlands worldwide looks set to become the most expensive defender in the history of the game when he completes a January transfer to Anfield, barring any late super-bid from either Manchester City or Chelsea, who have both been credited with an interest in the 26-year-old.
"We only talk about the player and what he can bring in; the quality, the mentality, the character". That's why we got him, that's why we were interested in him. "That is why we are really happy about it".
