Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk (32) has won everything with the Reds from Merseyside. Now, he is being linked with a sensational move away from Anfield.

German newspaper Bild claims that the Dutch national team defender is a potential transfer target for Borussia Dortmund.

With central defender Mats Hummels (35) on an expiring contract, and although Dortmund wants to extend the 35-year-old’s contract, the club sees van Dijk as the perfect successor.

The German newspaper lists several reasons why the transfer could happen.

Borussia Dortmund is one of the clubs that can, and is willing, to match van Dijk’s salary of 13.5 million euros, thereby persuading the 32-year-old to join the club.

Van Dijk’s contract at Anfield expires in the summer of 2025, making it possible that he could be available for a lower price this summer.

Additionally, the departure of Jürgen Klopp increases the likelihood of van Dijk wanting to try something new.

Bild further writes that if Hummels extends his contract with Dortmund, it could lead to an approach for van Dijk next summer.

Rumors about Saudi Arabia

It is important to mention that it’s not only in the Bundesliga where there are rumors of Virgil van Dijk possibly moving. Instead, there is interest in the Dutch defender from several leagues across Europe.

Furthermore, there are rumors that he might end up moving to a club in Saudi Arabia. This is primarily because he is 32 years old and is approaching the autumn of his career.

Often at this age, players begin to consider a move to Saudi Arabia or MLS. This is because they can secure lucrative contracts and thus extract the last coins from their careers.
