And, as you can probably imagine, Reds fans everywhere have no idea how to handle the Toffees outspending them.
The Dutch centre-back has been a long-term Liverpool target and it looked like he’d be moving to Anfield earlier in the transfer window, only for his current club Southampton to accuse Jurgen Klopp’s side of tapping their player up.
That furore caused Liverpool to back-off, and insist their interest in the player was dead – leaving the door open for any other clubs interested…such as Everton.
Oddscheker reported earlier today that a lot of money had been placed on van Dijk going to Goodison Park, leading to a semi-meltdown of Liverpool fans on Twitter:

Imagine if Everton actually get Van Dijk. Would make this transfer window even more embarrassing for us than it already has.

You get the gist.
And in case you hadn’t heard, Everton might just be getting £75 million for Romelu Lukaku, so signing van Dijk for a bit less than that is definitely feasible.
What do you think of the deal?
