Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is chasing Southampton defender Dejan Lovren.

The Mirror says Rodgers is lining-up a summer swoop for Lovren.

Croatian international Lovren, 24, has made 25 appearances for the Saints this season and scored the winner against Brendan Rodgers' title-chasers at Anfield in September.

The centre-back was heavily linked with the Reds before arriving at St Mary's in a £8.5million deal from French side Lyon in June.
