Liverpool ready to sign Premier League defender ahead of summer spending spree

Southampton v Arsenal - Barclays Premier LeagueMetro have Liverpool fans rolling their eyes in despair here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think the Reds are once again set to raid Southampton.

Brendan Rodgers seems to be a huge fan of the club from the south coast and has already been on a football manager’s version of supermarket sweep last summer – and to a rather underwhelming effect as well.

Now the Liverpool manager wants to bring Jose Fonte to Anfield and while the majority of our regulars are big fans of Fonte’s and feel that he actually deserved a place in the team of the year ahead of Gary Cahill, we also think Rodgers might want to broaden his horizons when it comes to his scouting and transfer wish list – oh and Fonte himself might want to hold out for a better club.

Liverpool fans. Is this something you think Brendan Rodgers should have already learnt from? Is buying players from Southampton a fail that will cost you a top four place for a second season in a row? Let us know your thoughts below.
