Le Tissier makes obvious joke about Liverpool’s interest in Southampton

Over the years, Liverpool and Southampton have conducted plenty of transfer business together.

The Merseyside outfit have swiped a number of players from the Saints team, including Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk.

The relationship between both clubs has not always been harmonious, particularly in relation to the pursuit of Van Dijk.

Last summer, the Reds had to issue a statement confirming that they had withdrawn their interest in the defender, but the Dutchman eventually got his move in January.

At the moment, the main transfer news surrounding Liverpool is the future of their star man Mohamed Salah, who has scored 36 goals in all competitions this season.

The Telegraph recently reported that Real Madrid and Barcelona could make a big-money move for the Egyptian international, but that Liverpool have no intention of selling.

On Twitter, a Southampton fan write to club legend Matt Le Tissier, jokingly asking which Saints player Liverpool will swoop for when they lose Salah.

The Sky Sports pundit saw the funny side.
