Southampton striker Rickie Lambert will reportedly seal a two-year deal at Liverpool over the weekend.

Southampton striker Rickie Lambert will reportedly complete a move to his boyhood club Liverpool over the weekend.

Widespread reports have claimed that the 32-year-old will undergo a medical with the Merseyside outfit on Saturday.

It is believed that the Reds have agreed a £4m fee with the Saints for the forward's services, plus add-ons.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Lambert, who will travel to Brazil with England's World Cup squad next month, will complete the transfer over the weekend by signing a two-year deal.

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.
