Liverpool ace Dejan Lovren has dropped a cryptic hint on Instagram that Southampton defender Jose Fonte could be on his way to Anfield.
Fonte revealed earlier this month that he had not been offered a new deal at St Mary’s, meaning he could leave in the January transfer window for as little as £5million.
It’s understood the Portuguese Euro 2016 winner is firmly on Manchester United’s radar – but has his former Saints team-mate just suggested he could be heading somewhere else?
‘Epic picture my brother!!! Well done,’ Fonte wrote on Lovren’s Instagram post after Liverpool’s defeat of Everton on Monday night.
Lovren replied: ‘thanks bro. hope to see you soon u know where. ;)’
However, it must be noted that Liverpool and Southampton play each other twice in January so, equally, the pair could have been discussing this…
At the beginning of December, Southampton midfielder Steven Davis spoke out about the possibility of Fonte leaving them in the new year.
‘In my time here we have sold a lot of players, a lot of big players, and it shows we are doing things the right way,’ Davis said.
