Chelsea have been handed an unlikely advantage in the race to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton this summer.

The Dutch defender was reportedly close to joining Liverpool from the Saints, but Van Dijk’s proposed Liverpool transfer has been called off as the Blues’ renew interest in the 26-year-old.

Van Dijk looked set to join Liverpool after indicating his preference to work under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, but the Reds revoked their interest in the Southampton defender, as Southampton reacted furiously to Liverpool’s move for their star defender and were threatening to report the Reds to the Premier League for tapping him up.

Liverpool have now pulled out of the race and Chelsea fans have reacted happily.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
