Liverpool will reportedly activate Dejan Lovren’s automatic contract extension, which will tie him to the club until 2022.
However, despite extending his deal, the Merseyside outfit are looking to offload him this summer, according to Neil Jones.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Dejan Lovren?
Since the arrival of Virgil van Dijk and impressive performances from both Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, Lovren has fallen drastically down the pecking order. The Croatian has been limited to just ten Premier League appearances this season, with only eight being starts (via Transfermarkt).
As a result of his irregular playing time, Lovren is reportedly ready to start the next chapter in his career away from Anfield. The 31-year-old is looking to be a regular starter for his team and that’s something Liverpool are unlikely to be able to provide for him.
Loads of Liverpool fans are speculating over what this contract extension could mean for business, with one tweeting ‘If we can get £10million then Edwards has done it again’. Lovren’s current Transfermarkt value is £14.4m, but with many fans eager to see him leave the club, it’s likely they will take any sum to get him off the books.

For us to extend the contract, they must be pretty confident he will be sold- it might be close to being agreed especially after what joyce has been sayin

Doubt anyone will buy him if we extend because of the higher pricetag. Prepare to have him on the payroll for another year delivering suspect performances

What an absolute clown show. Imagine if they don’t sell this joker this summer.
