Liverpool target Dejan Lovren has revealed he is content with life at Southampton despite speculation linking him with a move to Anfield.

Lovren has taken the Premier League by storm in his first campaign in England's top-flight which has placed him on Liverpool's transfer radar.

The 24-year-old, who moved to St Mary's from Ligue 1 giants Lyon at the start of the season, has been linked with a move to one of the Premier League's big boys due to his fine form for Southampton.

However the Croatian international, who is gearing up to take part in next summer's World Cup, has insisted he will not be pining for a move away from the club when the transfer window re-opens at the start of July.

Speaking to Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti, Lovren said on talk of a move to Liverpool: "I follow the media and I saw that Liverpool is allegedly interested in me. But that is all that I know so far.

"I feel great at Southampton and my contract is valid for the next three years.

"So the only thing I can say right now is that the club is the one who decides."

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers may still make a move for Lovren during the summer as he has identified his defence as a major weakness in his side.

The Northern Irishman often chose to plump with Martin Skrtel at centre-back - but opted to rotate the likes of Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Agger and Kolo Toure alongside him.
