Burnley v Liverpool - Premier League
Jurgen Klopp is known for getting the best out of players

Ever since Jurgen Klopp took over the reigns at Liverpool, the side has improved immensely. He is a type of manager who always wants his team to be fit and agile, and he is definitely making Liverpool a team like that.

Jurgen Klopp is known for getting the best out of every player and making them megastars. He has been the force behind the growth of players such as Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, and Marco Reus.

After coming to Anfield, he has been continuing to do the same. Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho both owe their fabulous growth in part to him. Liverpool have always been an attacking team with the defence being their main weakness. The German has been actively working on this and filling in every loophole he sees.

Jurgen Klopp, along with the boardroom, never hesitates to spend big on any player who, he thinks, has the potential to become a big asset his team. Right on this note, let us look at the top five Liverpool signings of the Jurgen Klopp regime.

#5 Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool v West Bromwich Albion - The Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round
Virgil van Dijk is the most expensive defender in the world

Maybe we are rushing too fast into the conclusions, but Virgil van Dijk's performances has certainly forced us to include him on this list.

Liverpool signed Van Dijk from Southampton in the January transfer window of 2018 by paying £75 million, which is a world record fee for a defender.

Virgil van Dijk is justifying his huge price tag with his superb performance and he certainly looks like a player who could end Liverpool's defensive woes. He adds composure to the backline and also brings the team together with his leadership qualities. Liverpool has kept six clean sheets in the last nine games and he played a major role in them.

He is still in his early days at Anfield and hence it is safe to say that with full pre-season and a good centre-back partner, he is only going to improve.
