Could another Southampton player be on their way to Anfield in the near future?

For the past few months, rumours have been building that 32-year-old Portuguese centre-half Jose Fonte could be about to leave St Mary’s.

Man United had been linked to the defender, although the Red Devils now seem to be closing in on a deal for a Benfica defender instead.

So maybe a move to Liverpool could be on the cards?

He would be following in the footsteps of Adam Lallana, Ricky Lambert, Sadio Mane and of course Dejan Lovren.

Lorvren tapping up?

Following Monday night’s Merseyside derby, Lovren has engaged with Southampton’s Fonte on social media.

Lovren wrote “hope to see u soon u know where”.

He also added a winky-face emoji.

So is Lovren calling for his former team mate to join the Reds?

It’s possible, although it’s also possible that Lovren was referencing the fact that Liverpool will play Southampton in the EFL Cup semi finals in January.
