Liverpool is bound to escape any disciplinary action over the controversial “tapping up” on Southampton Virgil van Dijk in an attempt to sign the defender.
The Saints has not withdrawn complaints despite the Reds’ statement on their website apologizing for any misunderstanding after it emerged that the player was keen on a move to Anfield.
Prior the disputes, sources told that Van Dijk expressed to Liverpool that they were his preferred destination in summer over Chelsea and Manchester City.
Liverpool were ready to pay up a world record of £60 million fee for Van Dijk but Southampton were infuriated by stories that suggest he wanted to leave the side of Jurgen Klopp.
At the moment, Liverpool has already ended any interest in the Dutch footballer and that Premier League will take no further action into the issue since there was no evidence to fully support the allegations.
Meanwhile, it can be recalled that Liverpool have had previously been banned from signing players for an illegal approach to a Stoke City youngster earlier this year.
With this, the Reds avoided similar risks as manager Klopp aims to significantly to improve his squad this summer.
