Dejan Lovren has completed his move to Liverpool for a fee of £20m.

Liverpool have acquired yet another Southampton player, this time center-back Dejan Lovren. Lovren is a very solid defender who had an incredible season last year and should help Liverpool's average defense. Liverpool were great in attack last season but can certainly use an upgrade in defense and Lovren should provide immediate help. Lovren will likely be a starter on day one and should have solid fantasy value throughout the season.

Adam Lallana suffered a knee injury in training that is set to keep him sidelined at the start of the 2014/2015 Premier League season,

Lallana has ligament damage after training in Boston as the Reds are in the midst of their preseason tour in the United States. A fantasy stud last season, managers will now need to wait on his return to invest. It is probably best to take a wait-and-see approach regardless as his role in Liverpool's side may very well not be as productive as his days in Southampton. In recent years, midfielders like Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing made the jump to Anfield after a great year with a smaller club and failed miserably.

Liverpool have a reached an agreement with Sevilla on the loan signing of the disappointing Iago Aspas.

Never a fit at Anfield, the forward would charitably be classified as a disappointment for the Reds. That disappointment came to at least a temporary end today as Sevilla agreed with Liverpool on a year-long loan deal that, theoretically, will lead to a permanent move next season. No word on whether this brings the signing of fullback Alberto Moreno in the other direction any closer to fruition but we're sure there will be more on that one way or the other soon with the executives for both clubs in close touch over the Aspas move.

Benfica winger Lazar Markovic's rumored move to Anfield appears to be hours away from being completed according to journalist Richard Buxton who covers the Reds.

Such is the talent of Luis Suarez that it's hard to get a handle on the sort of player you should bring in to replace him. On the surface, Markovic is fast, young and talented which are all good things to be adding to the squad. What is less clear is where he fits in with Sterling, Coutinho, and Henderson behind Daniel Sturridge (we're assuming that Emre Can and Steven Gerrard will lock down the other two midfield spots). This isn't to suggest that having depth in attacking options is a bad thing but as far as improving the overall quality of the first team, this may not be the move that supporters are going to get instant gratification from.

The inevitable has come to pass. Liverpool have officially announced the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

With Suarez out the door there is a massive gap in Liverpool's exceptional attack from last season. There is a rumor circulating that they will attempt to fill that gap with Karim Benzema. Not exactly a like for like change but certainly not a bad consolation prize if it happens.

Serial biter Luis Suarez had his appeal of his four-month FIFA suspension rejected by the sport's governing body.

With the rest of the World Cup going on, it seems like an under-reported story that FIFA has ventured outside their usual jurisdiction to impose a worldwide ban on Luis Suarez for four months. The Uruguay and Liverpool forward appealed the suspension and that appeal has now been rejected. He still has the option to appeal to further to the Court of Arbitration for Sport who might, indeed, indicate that FIFA can only ban him from playing for Uruguay. Regardless, this turn of events likely has zero impact on Suarez's likely move to Barcelona that continues to rumble forward.

Serbian international Dusan Tadic has officially signed with Southampton for a reported £10.9m fee to replace the attacking threat in midfield created by Adam Lallana's departure for Liverpool.

New manager Ronald Koeman managed against Tadic for the past four seasons in the Dutch Eredivisie and has now brought Tadic in as his first recruit at Southampton. The difference in the fee gained for Lallana and paid for Tadic means that the Saints have plenty of room to strengthen elsewhere assuming Tadic can produce similarly to Lallana. The attacking midfielder is definitely one to watch heading into the new Premier League season as he'll have every chance to produce for the Saints and his new manager. The one warning here is that there are plenty of examples of high-scoring players from Holland who have failed to translate their success to the Premier League. The hope for Southampton will be that Koeman's familiarity with the player will have helped him pick out a player capable of making the leap.

With Brendan Rodgers making moves to upgrade the roster, two former starters may be on their way out of Anfield with Daniel Agger and Lucas Leiva both linked with continental moves.

Both players have been injured on a fairly regular basis in recent seasons and Brendan Rodgers didn't seem to be their biggest fans even when they were healthy. That usually signals that it is time to move on. Lucas has been linked with a move to join former manager Rafa Benitez at Napoli while Agger has long been linked with Barcelona, presumably as a reserve option in defense. The Barcelona opportunity may have passed but it seems likely that both players will be moving on as Rodgers continues his squad makeover.

With the Luis Suarez transfer saga still making headlines, Liverpool have been linked with more attacking talent in the form of Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi.

If Liverpool are going to lose Luis Suarez, then they aren't going for stopgap measures to replace him. They are continuing to look to young players with very high ceilings as they start spending the Suarez transfer fee before it is confirmed. The latest two targets rumored to be close to a move are Serbian winger/forward Lazar Markovic and Belgium forward/World Cup sensation Divock Origi. Markovic (20) and Origi (19) are both poised to be exceptional talents but neither seem terribly likely to replace much of the production lost if Suarez goes to Barcelona. Reports indicate that Origi would be loaned back to Lille as part of the transfer deal. Sounds like a replacement in his prime is also in order if Liverpool are to keep their spot in the top four and challenge for the league title again this season.

The Luis Suarez to Barcelona rumor seems to be gaining more and more steam and the Uruguay striker could be headed to Barcelona within 48 hours.

There have been many rumors about a Suarez move ever since the bite accident in the World Cup and it seems the rumors are true. Various reports from England and Spain are reporting that a deal is imminent. The reported sum is $137 million, which would made Suarez the second most expensive player in history behind Gareth Bale. If the move happens, Alexis Sanchez could be headed the other way to Liverpool as part of the compensation for Suarez or in a completely separate deal. Sanchez would be a great fit at Liverpool and would immediately be a great fantasy option.

Southampton and FC Twnete have agreed on a fee for left-winger Dusan Tadic.

Tadic has been rumored to be coming in as Adam Lallana's replacement and the deal seems imminent. Tadic has 28 goals in 66 matches in the Eredivisie and is known as a playmaker. He is a Serbia international and is highly rated at the age of just 25. It seems Southampton are keen on rebuilding their squad after selling Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, and Rickie Lambert and Tadic is the first signing in the process.

Liverpool have signed Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can.

Can joins Liverpool at a £10m price tag and will provide the necessary backup for Liverpool to challenge for a title in multiple competitions. He comes in having played 29 Bundesliga and seven UEFA Champions League matches last season, so he has the necessary experience to fill in at the highest level. He is only 20 years old and can be a long term contributor at Anfield if he develops as expected. Can had three goals and three assists while being primarily deployed as a central or defensive midfielder at Leverkusen. He has the potential to be Steven Gerrard's long term replacement but don't expect big fantasy contributions right away as he will be eased into the Premier League.

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of midfielder Adam Lallana from Southampton on a long-term contract.

Lallana took the Premier League by storm, scoring nine goals and assisting six with Southampton last season. He was a creative force in the middle, involved in almost everything the Saints did. His good work earned him a spot on England's national team and now a move to Liverpool. The attacking midfielder is only 26-years-old and will be able to play for Liverpool for years to come. The Reds will be battling for the Premier League title once again next season but will also be competing in the Champions League, so expect Lallana to be busy.
Jul 1 - 9:25 AM

Southampton are after Serbian midfielder Dusan Tadic as a potential replacement for Adam Lallana.

Adam Lallana is expected to sign with Liverpool sometime this week and Southampton are already looking at replacements. Tadic is a Serbian midfielder who currently plays for FC Twente. He was the fourth best goalscorer in the Dutch top flight and is known as a do-it-all playmaker. He also had the highest number of assists in the Eredivisie. He is expected to cost around £10m but Southampton might have to battle for him as there have been rumors about more clubs interested in his services.

Southampton want to bring in striker Pelle as a replacement for the departed Rickie Lambert.

Southampton have no target man after losing Lambert to Liverpool and new coach Ronald Koeman reportedly wants Pelle from Feyenoord. The 6ft 4in striker was signed by Koeman at Feyenoord and has been a force in the Eredivisie. He has scored 55 goals in 66 matches including 23 goals in 28 matches last season, making him one of the best strikers in the Dutch top flight last season. Southampton have a lot of money to spend this summer, so don't be surprised to see them make a few big signings. Pelle is expected to cost around £8m.
