Georginio Wijnaldum told Virgil van Dijk to 'follow his heart' to Liverpool
From ESPN - January 13, 2018

Georginio Wijnaldum refuses to take any credit in luring Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool, admitting that his only advice to his Netherlands international teammate was to "follow his heart."

The former Southampton man completed a 75 million move to Anfield earlier this month, and Wijnaldum says that while they talked before the transfer, there was no convincing needed on his part.
