The Dutch defender, 28, has been an integral player at Anfield after joining from Southampton in 2018, helping the Reds to a memorable Champions League triumph last season.

Van Dijk has also played a starring role in Liverpool’s pursuit for league glory this campaign, with the Premier League giants just two wins away from securing their first title crown in 30 years.
