The centre-half has gone public with his wish to join former team-mates Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana at Anfield, but Southampton have rejected a £20million offer.

New Saints manager Ronald Koeman made it clear this week he expected Lovren to return for the tour of Belgium after a post-World Cup break.

And a picture on the club's Twitter feed showed the Croatia international arriving in Europe with the rest of the squad.

Speaking on Friday at his first official press conference since succeeding Mauricio Pochettino, Koeman could not guarantee Lovren would start the season at St Mary's.

He said: "Of course you'd like to have all the players in the squad happy to be at Southampton. If there is a different opinion we will speak about it and finally the board has to make a decision."

Lovren had earlier criticised Southampton for failing to keep him informed about Liverpool's interest.

He said: "At this point, I don't know what I'll do and I don't like it. Frankly, my head is already at Liverpool. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world."

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
