Daily Express reported that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will give a tough time to Arsenal as they are hoping to secure the services of the young Dutch defender in January.
The Gunners have shortlisted many defenders for the upcoming window and van Dijk is the recent addition in the list. Arsenal boss Arsenal Wenger have also targeted Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels and Aston Villa centre-back Ron Vlarr for the winter market.
The 23-year-old has also been eyed by Tottenham Hotspurs and West Ham United, according to reports.
The Dutchman who is yet to make a debut for Netherlands will surely be eyeing a move to Premier League with three top sides interested in his services.
He has been a regular for Celtic since his move last year. He has scored 11 goals in 76 games for the Scottish side.
Van Dijk is expected to be moving away from Scotland next month.
While on the other hand former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie believes that he would be joining a team like West Ham United. Despite of big team interested in Celtic’s centre-half, McAvennie thinks that in the end he will move to a mid-table side.
