Liverpool are reportedly set to raid Southampton once again this summer with a £4million move for Jose Fonte.
It’s not the first time Rodgers has looked to the Saints to improve his defence, but last summers investment in Dejan Lovren hasn’t really worked out too well so far. So by logic, Lovren’s ex-partner must be the answer? Maybe, but Liverpool fans don’t seem keen on the idea.
At £4million Fonte could be a shrewd little signing, but he’s certainly not that big name centre half the fans want to see.
The Liverpool fans have responded by suggesting that the club are failing to effectively scout outside of the Premier League. I’d suggest they aren’t even scouting outside of Southampton.
The Saints fans have pointed to Rickie Lambert and Lovren as examples as to why Fonte should refuse a move. 31 year old Fonte has been a stalwart in his teams defence and it would be a shame and a bit odd if he were to join Liverpool this summer.
Liverpool are keen to reunite Dejan Lovren and Jose Fonte to work together. Whether it’ll be in Liverpool or Southampton, remains to be seen

Signing Fonte one year after signing Lovren would be the Liverpooliest Liverpool that ever did Liverpool. Benteke, too.
