Premier League transfer news: Top five most wanted defenders on Man United, Liverpool and Chelsea’s shortlist

Virgil van Dijk (Wanted by: Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea)
Djibril Sidibe (Wanted by: Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City)
Michael Keane (Wanted by: Manchester United, Everton and Liverpool)
Nelson Semedo (Wanted by: Manchester United and Manchester City)
Andrea Conti (Wanted by: Chelsea and Liverpool)



Long regarded as one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League, it is not a surprise Van Dijk remains wanted by a number of teams despite his ongoing injury. The Netherlands centre-back has been targeted by Manchester City – who are willing to pay him £180,000-a-week – Chelsea (£170,000-a-week) and Liverpool (£120,000-a-week). Southampton have no need, nor desire, to sell Van Dijk, and are believed to be holding out for a transfer fee higher than £50m. A wonderfully gifted ball-playing centre-half, Van Dijk would improve every team in the Premier League, and there is sure to be a big battle for his signature in the coming months.
