Southampton defender Dejan Lovren made a request to leave the club on May 30 amid interest from Liverpool, and could be set to follow several teammates out of the St. Mary’s Stadium exit door this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Having already sold Rickie Lambert to Brendan Rodgers’ side the South coast club will not be involved in any more transfer business until they appoint a new manager, with Dutchman Ronald Koeman expected to take charge in the coming weeks.

Liverpool reportedly put in an offer for Lovren in May, along with a bid for captain Adam Lallana. The newspaper claims that the 24-year-old responded to the interest by sending an email to chairman Ralph Krueger and executive director Les Reed declaring his intention to leave.

In the email, he cites his desire to play for a club participating in the Champions League as a reason why he is looking to move on, while he also points to former boss Mauricio Pochettino’s departure to Tottenham as another contributing factor.

The Croat joined Southampton last summer from Lyon and was an impressive performer as the Saints achieved their highest number of points in a Premier League season. He made 31 appearances and scored two goals, but still has three years remaining on his current contract.
