LIVERPOOL are being linked with a FOURTH raid on Saints.

Having already signed Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana, wantaway Dejan Lovren is Brendan Rodgers’ No 1 central defensive target this summer.

Now a national newspaper today reports that Rodgers could also be weighing up a £19m swoop for Jay Rodriguez.

The England international was one of the Premier League’s top scorers before he suffered a cruel knee ligament injury at Manchester City in April.

Rodriguez’ recovery is going well, but he is not expected to be back training until October with a return to competitive action delayed until around Christmas.
