Barcelona enquired about the possibility of signing Virgil van Dijk from Liverpool.
But the Spanish champions’ hopes of landing the Dutchman appear slim to none.
In his weekly column , Mirror’s Chief Football Writer John Cross discusses the approach from Barcelona.
“Do not expect it to happen for a moment, but Barcelona made enquiries about whether Virgil van Dijk could be tempted to leave Liverpool,” he writes.
“They were quickly given short shrift by the Dutch defender’s representatives. They did not bother taking it further.”
