Pochettino out to hijack Liverpool bids for Saints duo

Pochettino was appointed as Spurs' new boss on Tuesday on a five-year contract after resigning from Southampton.

And the Argentinian is targeting the signings of his former captain Lallana and centre-back Lovren.
Southampton are already in talks with Liverpool over a £20 million bid from Liverpool for Lallana.
But the club value Lallana close to £30m and Tottenham, according to the Guardian, will be hoping to convince Lallana to join them to team up with Pochettino once again.
Liverpool have also reportedly offered £8m for Lovren, but Pochettino reportedly wants the Croatian to follow him to White Hart Lane.
Lovren joined Southampton last year from Lyon on a four-year deal and is quoted by The Sun as saying: "The only thing I can say right now is that the club is the one who decides."
