Liverpool are set to step up their summer transfer activity with four new players…
Liverpool are closing in on the signings of four new players, which could set the Reds back an extraordinary total of £93.5m.
The Reds manager, Brendan Rodgers, has already been busy in the transfer market so far this summer, bringing in Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic, but this CaughtOffside exclusive understands that the Anfield club are now targeting a quartet of world class stars.
Having come so close to winning the Premier League title last season, the Liverpool board have given Rodgers plenty of money to work with this summer. The Reds owners are desperate to close the gap on their rivals and finally bring home the title next year, and are also anxious to appease the fans after the sale of star man Luis Suarez, in a £75m deal with Barcelona.
With two of the four deals all but done, two of the stand-out South American stars from this summer’s World Cup are also among Liverpool’s targets, and is it understood that significant progress has been made to bring them in.
4) Dejan Lovren (Southampton – £20m)
After a great first season in the Premier League for Southampton, Croatian centre-back Dejan Lovren is all set to be announced as a Liverpool player, with a medical reportedly scheduled for this weekend and a £20m fee agreed with the Saints. The 24-year-old will certainly be a quality addition to Liverpool’s inconsistent backline, and will join former team-mates Lambert and Lallana at Anfield.
