Van Dijk has been widely credited with providing the foundation - alongside another recent addition Alisson Becker - for the team's success this season, which has seen them continue to fight neck-and-neck for the title with Manchester City, as well as reach the Champions League semi-finals for the second consecutive season.
But according to the Daily Mail, the £75 million defender has won the race to win the trophy and the result will be officially announced on Thursday.
Van Dijk is a finalist for the award, and Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane, Manchester City's Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero and Chelsea's Eden Hazard are his rivals for the PFA prize.
Van Dijk has also helped the Reds defence line become stronger since his arrival at Anfield a year ago.
Liverpool's Dutch defensive colossus Virgil van Dijk will be unveiled as the 2018-19 PFA Player of the Year, according to reports in the English press.
As many as six Manchester City players made the list which also had four players from Premier League title chasers Liverpool.

The 43-year old was not assessed a penalty and the shot did not count as a stroke as Johnson had no intention to hit the ball. And the odd incident didn't shake Johnson's concentration; he birdied the hole to move to 1 over for the tournament.
Van Dijk also becomes the eighth Liverpool player to be crowned PFA Players' Player of the Year after Salah, Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard, John Barnes, Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, and Terry McDermott.
The official awards ceremony takes place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Sunday, April 28.
