Liverpool submit offer for Southampton’s Dejan Lovren

Not content with already signing two Southampton players, Liverpool are keen to swoop for another one in the form of defender Dejan Lovren.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the 24-year-old, who played for Croatia at the World Cup in Brazil, has submitted a transfer request and believes that he can leave the club for £20 million under a gentleman’s agreement.

However, the Saints have rejected such an offer from Liverpool in the hope of getting a higher amount for Lovren.

Lovren wants to play Champions League football for Liverpool next season and Rodgers is a big admirer of his talents.


The Reds boss believes his leadership qualities would help to shore up a backline which leaked 50 Premier League goals last term


Lovren is just 13 months into the four-year deal he signed when he joined Southampton for £8.5million from Lyon last June.
