Liverpool have agreed a £20m fee with Southampton for the transfer of Dejan Lovren.

The Croatia international has been a priority for Brendan Rodgers all summer as the Liverpool manager seeks to address his team’s defensive shortcomings.

The centre-half is set to become the third player to transfer from St Mary’s Stadium to Anfield since the end of last season and will undergo a medical on Merseyside on Saturday.

The Reds are also close to adding £8m Loïc Rémy and fellow striker Divock Origi, a £9.8m signing from Lille, to their squad. Rémy underwent a medical earlier this week in Boston where Liverpool had been in pre-season training while Origi had his medical in the United States on Friday.

Liverpool have already signed Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton, Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen and Benfica’s Lazar Markovic ahead of next season’s return to the Champions League. They could also be joined at Anfield by defender Javier Manquillo on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.
