Liverpool target hands in transfer request

Dejan Lovren World Cup fever is gripping The Football Transfer Tavern, and a host of fans will be checking out a certain Croatian centre back to see if he’s up to scratch.

This is because The Daily Mail claim Southampton defender Dejan Lovren has submitted a formal transfer request.

The defender has outlined his desire to play in the Champions League next season and an offer from Liverpool looks imminent.

Liverpool have been linked with the Croatian international for a long time now, and it’s believed that he is keen on a move to Merseyside.

Southampton are yet to appoint a successor for Mauricio Pochettino who quit the club to become Tottenham Hotspur manager.

And it’s thought the uncertainty at the club was a huge factor in Lovren’s decision to hand in a written request.

It’s proving to be a tough summer for Southampton already having also lost star striker Rickie Lambert earlier this month. as well as Pochettino.

Sadly for Saints’ fans it’s not expected to get any easier with Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw also on their way out of the club this summer.

Liverpool fans: Your dodgy defence was the only reason you didn’t win the title last year. But is Lovren the man to stop the leaks? Let us know your thoughts below.
