Virgil van Dijk has handed in a transfer request at Southampton leaving him up for grabs
At the moment, reports are linking the Dutchman to Premier League giants Chelsea and Liverpool.
And Kop legend Carragher has a feeling the lure of being the main man, rather than a bit-part figure at Chelsea, could swing it in Liverpool’s favour.
Carragher told Sky Sports: “Chelsea have been a lot more successful than Liverpool over the past 10 years.
“They are the champions and there’s the massive pull of living in London and at this moment Chelsea are a better team than Liverpool.
“But if I was him I’d have a look at how Chelsea set up in that back three. It looks to me like you’d have him as the middle man where David Luiz played so well last season.
“I don’t see either of them playing the wide centre-back position.
“I think with Liverpool the thing would be you could go there and be the man who took Liverpool back to winning trophies.
“People talk about the league but Liverpool have only won one trophy in 10 or 12 years.”
