Lovren confirms Liverpool move

The Croatia international rejected the advances of Arsenal and Tottenham in order to seal a move to Anfield for a reported €24 million transfer fee

Southampton defender Dejan Lovren has confirmed he is set to move to Liverpool with an official announcement expected imminently.

Goal understands the Croatia international turned down interest from Arsenal and Tottenham to complete a move to Merseyside.

“I signed a contract with Liverpool on Saturday night, and the club will officially confirm the transfer on Sunday at about 11pm,” he told Croatian news outlet Dnevnik.hr.

Lovren will join former team-mates Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana at Anfield once he completes his move, becoming the latest in a long line of Southampton players to leave the club this summer.
