Van Dijk will become the most expensive defender in history once his move from Southampton officially goes through on January 1, surpassing the £54m Manchester City paid for Kyle Walker during the summer.

Academy graduate Trent Alexander-Arnold, selected in place of Joe Gomez at right-back, responded by scoring at Anfield for the first time, and is hoping to keep his place for the busy run of fixtures ahead, especially with van Dijk due to join his club on New Year's Day.

The latest man who will play under this scrutiny is Virgil Van Dijk. "It is fantastic for Liverpool", Puel told a news conference on Thursday. It is fantastic for Liverpool.

"He can play in different good teams and it is a good reward for him".

Puyol is widely regarded as one of the finest defenders of the modern era following a career-spanning stint with Barca that yielded a host of honours, including six LaLiga crowns and three Champions League titles. At the beginning of the season it was hard for him because he wanted to join another club but now he will find his level.

"At the time the chief scout said he wasn't quick enough, he was playing in the Scottish League and he didn't see him stepping up to the level we were looking for".

If you want to sign a player, the last thing I think about is the price.

"If you bring one player in for £100m and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney", he said previous year. "He is tall and also has a strong character and personality".

"They are a great team with good defenders, midfield and attacking players. We have to look after our play and try to play our game against them", Puel added.

"It is a big change in football in recent years and we have to adapt".
