Liverpool are reportedly set to offer Alisson and VVD new contracts
Of all of the most reputable Liverpool sources out there, Melissa Reddy is one of the best. So the news from here this morning, particularly in light of weekend tabloid rumours, is positive.
Apparently, the club are prepared and ready to offer massive new contracts to two of our most valuable stars: Alisson Becker and Virgil Van Dijk.
According to the football journalist (writing in the Independent), Liverpool will offer the pair big new deals and, brilliantly, both want extended deals.
She said: "Liverpool believe there is no option on the market that fits into the pair’s territory this summer given the shape of the squad.
"The club’s priority is to lock down the world’s best centre-back and goalkeeper for the long-term with both wanting extended contracts."
There is, of course, no official news on these offers just yet. But expect any news to be saved for crucial points of the season. Maybe just prior to the title being (touch wood) won or when a particularly tough run kicks off from the beginning of March on-wards.
