"Could have bought Lovren for 8.5 million instead of Sakho for 18 million. We make money on players like Countinho and Sturridge and then pay over the top for everyone else."

"not sure how this ones going to work out. he's probably worth around £15m so £20m is very generous but Saints clearly dont want to lose any more players. not sure about wanting a player who would boycott his clubs pre season to try and force a move through. "

"and also seen how much kroos went for, its crazy ! our transfer team has been questionable for years now! we pay silly prices for players when we could have got others who are twice as good at the same price all the time"

"£20 million?! I don;t know what's more astonishing, us bidding £20 million or Southampton rejecting it!"

"Current squad is thin considering we have CL and injury to any of the major players dont have any proper back up.I think we need to have correct players.for progressing i. A wing forward - Cuadrado(30M)/Sanchez(part of Suarez deal)/Reus(30)/Greizman(23M)/Shaqiri(15M)/Kono(12M)/Munain(33M) 2.LB - Moreno(20M)/Rojo(12M) 3.CB - should not pay more than 15 for Lovren Add Isco/Kroos.

"why would any good player want to stay at a team that has just sold 3 of there best players? I would do everything to push through a move aswell"

"if we're going to pay over the odds id sooner see the £20m spent on moreno. reports saying Newcastle are in line for Aurier for £8m so try to hijack that move then i dont think we need the CB. as long as we get some continuity in the centre instead of having to keep making changes. Sakho will be a beast this season "

"Opened bidding at 20 mil! where do these journo's get this tripe from? if they said starting bid 12 mil then it would be a bit more believable. That said, I hope we do get him but for around say 15 mil."

"I'd rather live without a CB and put money on Aurier and Rodriguez as they are our most crucial positions to bolster. Hummels is the only CB we should be looking at for over £20m, but my bet is on us buying a cheap option like Caulker and annoying us some more."

"I thought aurier was going arsenal, id love us to sign him and moreno for fullback"

"well at least B R is identifying the soft spots in our team now the back line ,we need a commander in there who can shout out orders and tell it how it is.id kill for another tommy smith,showing my age now. YNWA JFT96"

"other than the suarez replacement, propably the most important signing"

"What a whole load of $hiit, may be we are interested but surely not 20 mil as this will make him the most expensive signed in defender in the EPL ( I know crazy PSG paid 40 mil for David Luis but that's because they are stupid) no defender in the EPL and certainly not from the saints worth that sort of money"

"Seriously are our only targets Southampton players? Lovren is decent but for £20m? Where's our ambition? We should go for someone of the quality of Hummels. Defence is our biggest weakness, we should go all out to get a world class CB in. "

"Lovren I like. Fast and dribbles well, attacking CB. Knows the EPL well. Will play well with Skrtel on the left and with Lallana and Lambert already at LFC, he will follow, esp now he has handed in a transfer request."

"Why do LFC, go to a lower finishing team, for a defender, ( Lovren )... When better quality players are around, look how the World Cup, has shown us that. "

"LOL! 20M??? We need a g LB and we cannot afford 20M for Moreno but we can for Lovren? "

"redmanisthebest - Take it you were still learning to hold a bottle when United splashed 30M for Rio Ferdinand. "

"for real!?... all that cash this type of player... god help us if we are gettting and spending the 80m+ from suarez transfer"

"I hope this happens for several reasons. 1. Quality defender 2. Passes nearly as good as Stevie. 3. He's a leader, a quality we lack badly in our defence at the moment."

"Natural Poolie im not that impress by his passing but he sure can do the job defensively, he has some good technique for a defender, is comfortable with the ball, doesnt panic and can beat an opponent.. but 20m thats too high i think"

"Moreno is not as good as everyone seems to believe! Don't believe all the hype because Sevilla is providing it all! I guarantee you this transfer saga will have an anti-climatic ending and if he does come to LFC everyone will wonder what the fuss was about! Im only commenting because I see Moreno in every other comment. Dont be so quick to drink the Kool-Aid!"

"Mat Hummels is immense! He is more than twice the defender Lovren is. But why are we raiding Southampton for players as if they won the Premier league last season? France vs. Germany just showed what a complete defender Hummels is. He ticks all boxes for a modern day center back. I won't mind if we pay 30M for Hummels instead of 20M for Lovren. "
