Liverpool are looking to raid Premier League rivals Southampton yet again this summer, as they look to complete a deal for central-defender and Saints captain Jose Fonte.
The Mirror report the news, which would frustrate Southampton supporters after they lose Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert to Brendan Rodgers side last summer.
Although their were concerns for Southampton this season, who also lost Luke Shaw to Manchester United and Calum Chambers to Arsenal, Ronald Koeman’s side have had an excellent season and are in the running for a Europa League spot.
Captain Fonte has been an integral part of the Saints success this season and Brendan Rodgers now wants to bring him to Anfield next summer- as he looks to build a defence that can push Liverpool back into Champions League football and the Premier League title race.
Ronald Koeman is unlikely to be willing to part with his key-defender but the club may not be able to stand in his way if Fonte decides he wants to leave- which would make an even more concerning summer for Southampton, with speculation regarding the futures of Nathaniel Clyne and Morgan Schneiderlin still ripe.
