Sign for Liverpool? 'Outstanding' €12m international wanted by Klopp drops massive transfer hint

One of Liverpool's current transfer targets has revealed some enticing news about his future.

The Reds are currently linked with a move for Southampton defender Jose Fonte, and new developments suggest he is on the way out of St. Mary's. Recent reports claimed that Fonte had rejected a new contract, but according to the man himself:

"I don't know what they [Southampton] are talking about. There's nothing on the table that I didn't sign. I have been informed by Southampton that they are NOT offering me a new contract".

Liverpool were first linked with Fonte last summer, and with the Reds clearly in need of another centre-back, the Portuguese's contract situation offers the Reds an opportunity bring in a top quality, experienced central defender on the cheap.

Reds legend Mark Lawrenson is certainly in favour of a transfer. When asked last season about Liverpool's centre-back situation, he told the BBC:

"I think Liverpool signed the wrong Saints centre-back when they bought Dejan Lovren in the summer, because Jose Fonte has just been outstanding for them".

Should Liverpool move for €12m-rated Fonte during the January transfer window?
