Southampton determined to keep Lovren

Southampton have no intention of selling Dejan Lovren this summer and will attempt to keep him at the club amid interest from Liverpool and Tottenham, the Daily Express has reported.

New Saints boss Ronald Koeman is keen to keep the Croatia defender on board for the upcoming season, with three of the club’s key players having left already this summer. Rickie Lambert and captain Adam Lallana have both joined Liverpool, while promising young left-back Luke Shaw has been poached by Manchester United for £27m.

Lovren enjoyed a highly impressive debut season in the Premier League after signing from Lyon, striking an effective partnership with Jose Fonte in central defence as the club finished eighth in the Premier League, with its highest points tally in the division since it was created in 1992.

His form for Southampton has led Lovren to be linked with a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, or becoming the third player to leave the club for Anfield. However, he has been told by Koeman that his future lies at the St. Mary’s Stadium, and the club are not willing to continue selling, with £60m now to spend on rebuilding their squad.
