Nou Camp side chase St Mary’s defender.

Check in to Cameroon vs Croatia

Barcelona have set their sights on Southampton defender Dejan Lovren according to the Daily Star.

The Croatian international is also known to be a player that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wants to sign this summer and the Saints may struggle to keep hold of the former Lyon man.

Southampton signed Lovren in an £8.5m last June after three solid seasons at Lyon and made 32 appearances in all competitions last term.

Barcelona could well see the 24 year old as a possible long term replacement for exiting veteran Carles Puyol with incoming boss Luis Enrique keen to ring the changes in his Nou Camp squad after an average trophy-less campaign in 2013/14, which effectively cost Gerardo Martino his job.
