Having brought in Southampton forward Rickie Lambert it appears that Brendan Rodgers has developed a taste for St Mary’s stars and is ‘locked in talks’ to bring in two further additions from the south-coast club according to the Daily Mirror.

Rodgers is no doubt keen to strengthen his leaky defence and as such believes Croatian international Dejan Lovren is a quality player worth tracking, with the former Lyon man having an excellent first Premier League campaign.

Though Liverpool had no problems finding the back of the net in 2013/14, keeping a clean sheet proved a far trickier proposition, so much so that Tottenham were the only top eight side to concede more goals than the Anfield side.

Kolo Toure, Daniel Agger and Mamadou Sakho all failed to impress consistently enough alongside rock solid Slovakian Martin Skrtel and a similarly uncompromising customer, such as Lovren, may be the right way for Rodgers to go.

Rodgers also continues to pursue midfielder Adam Lallana, having already registered two bids for the England international.

The 26 year old could be seen by the Northern Irish boss as a long term replacement for Steven Gerrard and seems certain to leave Southampton this summer having represented the club since the age of 12.
