Liverpool Are Targeting ANOTHER Southampton Player

It seems that, despite having to make an incredibly embarrassing, public apology to Southampton over their failed approach for Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool haven't finished in their quest to continue signing at least one Saints player every summer transfer window.

The Anfield club have helped themselves to five players from St. Mary's over the past three years, with Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne and Sadio Mane all trading the south coast for Merseyside.

One player who won't be making the trip up north is Dutch defender van Dijk, who had reportedly told Southampton officials he wanted to work under Reds' boss Jurgen Klopp, only to see the move fall apart when Saints reported Liverpool to the Premier League over the manner of their approach for the Netherlands international.

However, despite the relationship between the two clubs being fractious at best following the van Dijk debacle, Liverpool are not dissuaded from pursuing another Saints player.

According to the Mirror, Jurgen Klopp is interested in bringing Serbian midfielder Dusan Tadic to Anfield.

It has been revealed that the 28-year-old has a release clause of just £13 million, only £2.1 million more than the £10.9 million Saints paid FC Twente for Tadic three years ago.

The Serb has grown unhappy at St. Mary's, reportedly becoming annoyed with the amount of times he was subbed off during his 45 appearances under manager Claude Puel, last season.

Tadic has turned out 121 times for Southampton since arriving from Twente, in 2014. The Serbian international has scored 16 times and laid on another 42 assists for his teammates.

West Ham are also rumoured to be interested in the attacking midfielder.
