Southampton chairman rules out sale of Virgil van Dijk

Watford v Liverpool- Premier League

Southampton are beginning to prepare for life after Virgil van Dijk, with the Saints making a bid for another Dutch defender in the form of Lazio star Wesley Hoedt, according to Italian newspaper Il Messaggero.

Saints were keen to keep hold of the 26-year-old but after submitting his transfer request, it is claimed they could be tempted to cash in and sell to the Premier League champions Chelsea if their offer reaches the £70m mark.

"I think all of us, the technical director, me as a manager, we know that Virgil is an important part of the club but we need him in another way".

The South Coast club are exhausted of their best players being poached each year and have significantly more financial clout since the Gao family bought an 80 per cent stake of the club for £210million on Monday.

With the transfer window set to close on August 31, Jurgen Klopp is looking to bolster his Liverpool squad with further signings in the coming weeks.

EPS for Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT) Expected At $1.06
The retailer reported $1.00 earnings per share for the quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.96 by $0.04. Pioneer Investment Management Inc.'s holdings in Wal-Mart Stores were worth $31,976,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

"I will tell you one thing - over the years we have spoken I don't give definite answers where there isn't a definite", he added. We can not build them. Nobody is for sale that we don't want to sell, so he is not for sale in this window.

"They didn't create too much with the ball but of course they scored two goals and in a specific situation where everyone will say, "Oh, it was a set-piece", Klopp said. "It has got to be something that truly strengthens the squad and fits into our group".

Arriving from AZ Alkmaar back in 2015, Hoedt made 23 league appearances last season, partnering the likes of Stefan De Vrij (who seems more likely to leave this summer) and Wallace throughout a successful season for Lazio.

"With all the knowledge I have today and all the information I have on my plate right now my answer is we are carrying our strategy through the summer and that's it".

"Yes, we did wrong [against Watford], and what do I want to do to sort it?"
