There are suggestions that Merseyside outfit Liverpool have got a perfect replacement for their central defender Virgil Van Dijk who is tipped to come up the stage as fast as possible.

The Reds team look more solid this season than any other club in the English Premier League in the defense department with the cleanest sheet and that has been attributed to the feat and strong form of Virgil Van Dijk.

Virgil Van Dijk is now in contention for the PFA Player of the Year Award as a result of his feat this season for the Merseyside outfit Liverpool after joining from Southampton.

However, Liverpool now have a young player named Rhys Williams, who has been tipped to step into his shoes with his performance and trait on the pitch, similar to that of the Netherland defender.

What is more interesting about Rhys Williams is the fact that he has got the same hair type and stature as the former Southampton player to make the similarities more recognizable.

Rhys Williams has therefore confessed that he has been watching the videos of Virgil Van Dijk as instructed to him by his coaches as they are currently building him up in that direction.

Howbeit, the Merseyside outfit will hope that Rhys Williams continues with his development so as to be able to step into Virgil Van Dijk’s shoes.
