Liverpool and Arsenal transfer target Virgil van Dijk “would normally” leave Southampton due to the circumstances he is in at St Mary’s, according to former Arsenal striker Alan Smith.
Smith believes it is strange Saints have made Van Dijk train with the youngsters, especially if they want to re-integrate him into the squad.
“It’s a strange one because if you want to keep a player on side, you don’t make him train on his own,” Smith said on Sky Sports.
“He’s obviously unhappy, fed up at Southampton. Then they’ve got to bring him back into the first-team squad and get him onboard again which won’t be easy.
“I don’t know why he’s been made to train on his own. When that happens they normally go don’t they, they normally go.”
