BBC journalist Ben Smith has announced on Sunday that Liverpool are set to confirm the signing of Dejan Lovren from Southampton on Monday.
Lovren has been linked with Liverpool throughout the transfer window, with the player thought to cost in the region of 20 million pounds.
Lovren, 25, is expected to sign a four-year deal at Anfield, where he’ll join former Southampton players Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.
Despite finishing second in the 2013-14 Premier League title race, Liverpool conceded 50 goals and were always set to bring in defensive reinforcements this summer.
Whether the arrival of Lovren will lead to the departure of Daniel Agger to FC Barcelona remains to be seen.
Better news ahead for Liverpool fans. Dejan Lovren has completed his £20m move to Anfield. Expect #LFC to confirm on Monday
