Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino plans to re-invest from the sale of Virgil van Dijk back into the squad.

When the January transfer window opens, van Dijk will join Liverpool in a £75 million deal, a world record for a defender.

Pellegrino says he already has his targets, and will look to buy a couple of players to improve the squad.

“You have to analyse in a positive way to reinvest this money in our squad to try to be stronger,” he said. “At Southampton it is impossible to bring in players for £80million or £50million.

“But maybe for us it can mean a couple of good players. Maybe we can change one player for two or three players with this money.

“We are talking about the couple of targets that we’ve got. I would like to bring in a couple of players minimum and we have to work for this.”
