Liverpool now sit on the summit of the log with 12 points, having won all the four matches of the new season, with Man City, who are the defending champions second with 10 points after dropping points against Tottenham in matchweek 2.

He said on Twitter: "Liverpool want to close Virgil Van Dijk's renew until 2025". I am sure he has the best interests at heart with every player in the squad, but sometimes you are so involved in a match and the manager is still chasing you.

The star defender's current deal means he will be a Reds player until 2023 and that is why the club is in no hurry to open talks over new terms.

At the moment, Van Dijk, who pockets about £125,000 weekly, will now smile to the bank with about £200,000-a-week, according to the Mirror report.

The news will receive mixed emotions from the Anfield faithful who will be happy that the 28-year-old wants to stay, but anxious that his opinion could change before he commits he future to the club.

China, US to hold trade talks early October
The United States and China have agreed to resume face-to-face negotiations meant to end their ongoing trade war, CNN reports. This is in addition to the 25 percent tariffs on US$250 billion worth of Chinese goods that have been in place since June.

The Sterling and Salah debate is nothing new and it's something that has been a big talking point among supporters of the Premier League, not just Liverpool and Manchester City fans.

However, as with Philippe Coutinho in the past, a mammoth bid could convince the club to reinvest.

The Dutchman was in sensational form during the campaign, winning both the PFA Player of the Year and UEFA Men's Player of the Year after a series of imperious displays as the Reds pushed Manchester City all the way for the Premier League title and won their sixth European Cup in Madrid. Van Dijk is the latest first-team player to have his contract extended with Liverpool.

"I actually felt a little bit sorry for Andy Gray", he said.

They have made a fantastic start and sit top of the table with four wins from four so far - the only team in the top flight with a flawless record - and look in good shape as they aim to become champions for the first time in 30 years.
