Southampton signing Lovren: Price-tag doesn't guarantee starting place
The Croatia international moved to Saints at the end of last season from Lyon.
"Now I feel myself ready physically and mentally. We'll see ... My job is to fight for my place because nothing is guaranteed to anyone, regardless of the amount of your transfer.
"The competition is very strong, the coach told us that nobody had an assured place in the starting lineup, I will try to get into his plans," said Lovren.
