Southampton defender Dejan Lovren is set to get his wish and complete a dream move to Liverpool in the coming days, according to reports in Croatia.
The 25-year-old was quoted as saying his 'head is already in Liverpool' two weeks ago, having handed in a transfer request at St Mary's.
And it now seems the Reds could land their man for a significantly less fee, with Croatia newspaper Sportske Novosti reporting Lovren is set for a €20million (£16million) move to Anfield.
It's the same outlet which published the aforementioned interview with the Croatia international, where he revealed his frustration with the ongoing transfer saga.
The rumours suggest the centre-back will sign a four-year deal with the Merseyside outfit, and could complete his move as soon as Tuesday.
Meanwhile, new Southampton boss Ronald Koeman admitted he is targeting a move for Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar, who impressed during the World Cup for third-placed Netherlands, fuelling the rumours of Lovren's impending exit.
Koeman told Fox Sport: "Ron [Vlaar] would definitely be an option, but I think he won't be cheap right now. Let's just wait and see.
"We just have to wait how it develops. For now, Dejan can still play with us. I don't want to lose him but, if he leaves he will only go for a top price."
