That is according to former Reds striker Micky Quinn.
The Dutchman finally secured his long-awaited move to Anfield yesterday and will join the Merseyside outfit on January 1.
But eyebrows have been raised over the whopping transfer fee Liverpool have splashed out on Van Dijk.
However, Quinn believes if the defender settles at the club, the figure will turn out to be a shrewd piece of business.
“He’s a big presence, he’s got two big feet, he’s a threat from corners as well, from dead-ball situations,” he said on talkSPORT.
