Liverpool: Meet The World Cup Centre Back Rodgers Wants To Replace Skrtel 

You've got to feel for Southampton. They've just had their best season for years - playing slick, attractive football with a number of local players, all under the inspired leadership of a smart young manager - and now the big clubs have picked them to the bone

Saints have lost their manager to Spurs, and Luke Shaw's gone to United. Liverpool have already signed Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, and now according to The Express, Dejan Lovren are in their sights.

The Croatian defender, who played in the World Cup, wants to play Champions League football and he isn't happy about Mauricio Pochettino's departure.

Liverpool came so close to the title last year in spite of their defence, rather than because of it, and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping Lovren can help to tighten things up at the back. He's an intelligent defender who reads the game well and he's very composed in possession, which would suit Liverpool's attacking style.

Would Liverpool fans like to see Lovren in your defence next year?
