The former England and Manchester City manager believes that Van Dijk has been a superb signing for Liverpool.
Eriksson has also described the former Celtic star as a player who is “out of this world”.
Eriksson told The Times: “This Liverpool have everything, and the best thing they did is buy Van Dijk.
"You can attack with a lot of people because he will always sort out one against one at the back. If you have Van Dijk you can do whatever you want, he is out of this world.”
Brilliant signing for Liverpool
Van Dijk joined Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £75 million.
The Dutchman has been a superb signing for the Reds, as he has been a key figure in Jurgen Klopp’s side doing extremely well at the back.
Liverpool won the Champions League last season, and they are on the verge of clinching the Premier League title this campaign.
