Liverpool are reportedly hoping to sign Dusan Tadic from Southampton by activating a release clause in his contract.
Everyone has their favourite supermarket, convenience store or go-to grocery shop that they can head to at a moment’s notice; for the Reds, that apparently continues to be St. Mary’s.
There was already a fractious nature to the relationship between Liverpool and Southampton over the past few summers after multiple transfers heading the way of Anfield. And that was before the Virgil van Dijk saga which culminated in an apology from the Reds.
Nonetheless, Liverpool are back in for another Saints star: Dusan Tadic, available for just £13 million and with no complications involved.
The scheming midfielder has habitually played either centrally or on the right for Saints in the attacking line behind the striker, but can also play as a support forward or from the left.
He netted three and assisted eight in a difficult 2016/17 campaign, but posted nine goals and 14 assists in 15/16.
Tadic will turn 29 in November and, while he has shown his pedigree in the Premier League, adding him at such a price would likely be seen as a move to bolster squad numbers rather than seriously challenging Philippe Coutinho and Co. for a starting XI spot.
