The Reds signed the Netherlands international in a club record £75m deal on Wednesday evening to make Van Dijk the most expensive defender in the world.
The Southampton defender will officially complete his much anticipated move to the Anfield outfit on Monday when the January transfer window opens.
While Liverpool FC have paid a world record fee for a defender, the length of Van Dijk’s contract remains something of a mystery.
The former Celtic centre-half was present at Anfield on Saturday as the Reds signed off on 2017 with a 2-1 comeback win against Leicester City.
Asked about Van Dijk’s contract in his post-match media conference after their close-fought victory, Klopp said:
“It is not too important. I don’t know how long the contract will be. My guess is maybe five or six years? I don’t know but we have plenty of time to chat.”
Van Dijk will be tasked with improving Liverpool FC’s leaky defence under Klopp after the Reds shipped 24 goals in their opening 21 games.
The Merseyside outfit finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a return to the Champions League after a two-season absence.
The Reds will take on Portuguese side FC Porto in the Champions League last 16 in February as Klopp looks to win the competition for the first time.
