Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk has told Southampton he wants to leave the club this summer amid interest from Chelsea and Liverpool.

The 26-year-old defender was expected to join rivals Liverpool early this summer but Liverpool backed out from the move after Southampton threatened to report Liverpool to the FA for tapping the defender.

According to a report on The Times, Southampton would prefer to sell Van Dijk to Chelsea rather than Liverpool because they are unhappy Liverpool held talks with Van Dijk as far back as April, despite asking Jurgen Klopp’s side to wait until the end of the campaign.

Chelsea are preparing to submit a bid for the defender and The Times claim Southampton are only willing to sell the defender to Chelsea.
