Reports linking Liverpool superstar Virgil van Dijk to Barcelona and Real Madrid are rubbished in the latest episode of The Agenda. According to a daily sports newspaper Spain, the La Liga giants are readying moves for the Dutch colossus, but as writers Dan Austin and Dan Morgan explain here, why would he even consider leaving Liverpool? Not when the Reds are in such a 'sweet spot' and, after years of planning, are a 'final destination club'. And as our duo also discuss, the champions of Europe are already putting plans in place for when van Dijk eventually loses some of his supreme powers which, judging by THAT incredible tackle v Newcastle United on Saturday, isn't going to be anytime soon.

Never commented about a podcast before despite being a podcast addict from footy to true crime to random stuff, but think the comments below are slightly harsh to say the least, I love the difference of journo/fan aspect to contrast the other 4 Liverpool podcasts I listen regularly to, plus the amount put out and for free too has quenched my thirst for LFC content over the last year and I highly recommend this podcast. Allez allez allez

Terrible podcast all round - one lad doesn't watch any foreign, international or even other prem games!!!!! the Firmino discussion was laughable. Klopp takes him off to reserve his energy for the next game. The usual moan stand comment is a bit critical after listening to you lot.
