Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler says that Rickie Lambert will be a success at Anfield ahead of his £4m move from Southampton.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has said that Rickie Lambert would be a "magnificent" addition to the club ahead of his £4m move from Southampton.

The 32-year-old will reportedly make the move to his boyhood club after completing a medical on Saturday.

The Reds have acted quickly in their pursuit of Lambert ahead of the World Cup and are believed to have already agreed personal terms on a two-year deal for the England player.

Fowler told The Sun: "For £4m you're getting a recognised striker who scores goals and who can hold balls up. He's what Liverpool need, he's got a little bit of everything."

Liverpool, who missed out on winning the Premier League title by two points last season, have also been linked with Lambert's Southampton teammate Adam Lallana.
