Lambert lauds Lovren

2 July 2013 23:16

Southampton striker Rickie Lambert feels that new signing Dejan Lovren will make an impact in the Premier League next season.

Lovren agreed to join Mauricio Pochettino's side from Lyon last month in a deal believed to be worth around £8.5million, and Lambert, who scored 15 goals for Southampton last season, believes that the Croatian will be a success at St Mary's.

"I didn't know too much about him, but I've read up on him and he will be a very, very good addition to the squad," Lambert told the club's official website.

"I haven't met him yet but I can't wait. Hopefully he'll help push us on."

The 31-year-old Lambert thinks that, ideally, more new recruits are needed before the start of the new campaign, but he still has faith in the current crop of players to deliver if required.

"We're more than confident in the team we've got now, but hopefully the gaffer is going to bring in a few to improve us as well," Lambert added.

"It's ideal to get people in at this stage – as a player, you can't underestimate how important that is. Thankfully we've got a good lad and a good defender in, and hopefully we can get a couple more in.

"Even if we don't, I still think we've got a very good squad with very good people.

"We've all had a season in the Premier League, so I think we'll be even better next season."
