According to 90 min, Liverpool intend to double Van Dijk's wages, while adding at least another 12 months to his time in the North-West.

Van Dijk was also pressed on who was the most hard player he has come up against in the Premier League.

There has been a vast array of world class strikers to play in the Premier League since the Dutchman joined Southampton back in 2015, but Aguero is undoubtedly one of the best strikers to grace the Premier League. "I never saw him properly play but I know he was pretty good".

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has named his toughest opponent he has played against, and has also shed light on who he believes is the best player he has had the pleasure to play alongside.

When he was asked who his best teammate has been, last season's PFA Players' Player of the Year victor responded: "I'm going to be a little bit biased and say one of my teammates; I would say Roberto Firmino". Van Dijk has won the Champions League with the Reds and hopes to continue winning titles under Jurgen Klopp.

The Yankees loaded the bases with one out against Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning, but were unable to push across the tying run. The umpires then huddled and determined that Jansen's timeout came first, thus creating a dead ball situation.

Asked to pick his best boss, Van Dijk ticked both domestic and worldwide boxes by saying: "Ronald Koeman and Jurgen Klopp".

But Klopp's men rallied back at Anfield to thump Barca 4-0 in the return leg.

It has been suggested that Van Dijk is now ready to walk in the footsteps of the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo by landing the prestigious Ballon d'Or.

The same article says that Liverpool FC want to hand Van Dijk improved terms, despite the fact that his current deal still has several years left to run.

As for the greatest game he's watched, the 28-year-old gave a clever response: "I watched the Barcelona game back".
