Liverpool are closing in on their fourth summer signing following a £25 million move for Benfica winger Lazar Markovic.
The Merseysiders are understood to be on the verge of securing the 20 year-old's services.
Serbian Markovic has been on Chelsea's radar for the last few years, but Liverpool have been in negotiations with the player and his club for several weeks and breakthrough appears to have been made.
Markovic will join Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Emre Can in transfer spree which will go beyond the £60 million mark, although funds are sure to be recouped in the coming days and weeks.
While Markovic appears Anfield bound, Southampton defender Dejan Lovren has accused his club of breaking promises and lacking ambition as he pushes for a move to Liverpool.
Lovren says the managerial and executive changes at Southampton have prompted his decision to seek an exit.
His club want Liverpool to significantly increase their valuation to secure a third Saints player having already signed Lambert and Lallana.
