Everton have been put off Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk in the January transfer window, after it was revealed that the Scottish club are not willing to part with their star player for anything less than £10 million, according to the Daily Express.
This could allow Manchester United to swoop for the elegant defender, who the Old Trafford club have been repeatedly linked with a move for.
They are joined by the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, Sunderland, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United in having an interest in signing him.
Everton’s opposition to the staggering fee can be seen by the fact that they have cancelled discussions with Celtic over signing him.
While this puts the larger clubs in the Premier League in the driving seat to bring him in, there is a belief that no one interested will be willing to front the huge sum that Celtic have requested for an integral player.
