Liverpool are closing in on the double signing of Southampton defender Dejan Lovren and Belgian international striker Divock Origi.
The moves for the duo will continue the clubs heavy investment this summer as they look to build for a return to the Champions League and the loss of star player Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
Liverpool had previously had a £20 million bid for Lovren rejected by Southampton, but after the Croatian defender's admittance that his "head was already at Liverpool", Saints seem willing to allow a third player leave the South Coast for Anfield this summer after the departures of Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert.
Origi, 19, is due to fly to America, where Liverpool are currently on a pre-season tour, for a medical after the Reds negotiated a £10 million deal with his club Lille, where he will be loaned back next season to continue his development.
The Belgian will likely be the club's third striking addition of the summer, following Rickie Lambert and the imminent arrival of QPR forward Loic Remy for £8.5 million. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his summer recruits can replace the goals lost by the departure of Luis Suarez after his £75 million move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
Origi, Lovren and Remy will make it seven summer signings for the club, after the earlier captures of Lallana, Lambert, Bayer Leverkusen's Emre Can and Serbian winger Lazar Markovic.
