Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius believes the club’s big-money signing, Virgil van Dijk, is finally beginning to settle into the Reds’ defensive system.

Virgil Van Dijk moved to Liverpool from Southampton for a record £75 million at the start of January and, despite netting a goal on debut, has at times struggled to gel with his new teammates.

But off the back of a comfortable 2-0 weekend win over the Saints, and with their Champions League clash with Porto coming up on Wednesday, Karius believes that the 26-year-old Dutch international is starting to hit his stride.

“Virgil has played quite a bit now and we’re getting more used to each other — that’s important for the team,” Karius told the Liverpool Echo.

“He’s a top player — that’s why Liverpool paid the price they did for him. Of course, he has to adapt a bit because our style is so different. We defend high. He needs to get used to Dejan [Lovren] and Joel [Matip].

“But the more he gets used to our style, he’s finding his feet more and more. It’s good to see and as a keeper, you feel comfortable having players like that in front of you. The clean sheet was great for all of us.”
