Having played in the World Cup final in Russia last summer, Dejan Lovren would have been hoping things would have been a whole lot better for him at Liverpool this season. However, injuries and the emergence of Joe Gomez really have not helped his cause and has seen him fall way down Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order in recent months.
With that being said, if the Croatia international wants to be playing regular football once again, he must surely move on, and if reports are to be believed, he could be offered a real lifeline in the summer.
What’s the News?
According to The Mirror, AC Milan, AS Roma and Napoli are all rumoured to be interested in snapping up Lovren this summer.
Roma and Napoli have concerns in defence of their own as their star men attract unwanted interest, whilst Milan are desperate to add reinforcements to their backline.
Liverpool should look to capitalise on the interest being shown in Lovren and allow for him to depart Anfield in the summer.
The Reds should look to cash in on the enforcer and with some of Serie A’s biggest sides thought to be keen, the Premier League giants must not hesitate should they receive an offer.
The 29-year-old has clearly become surplus to requirements under Klopp as Gomez has emerged as Virgil van Dijk’s true partner, whilst the likes of Joel Matip and even Fabinho have been used in the England international’s absence over the Croatian.
Admittedly, injuries have not helped Lovren’s chances of making an impression this season, however, when he has been handed a chance, he has not always taken it and has appeared to be rather average at times with his performances, whilst mistakes have also crept in.
But the fact that he continues to be overlooked when he is fit and available clearly speaks volumes.
Liverpool fans, do you think the club should cash in on the interest in Lovren? Or do you think he should be kept at Anfield? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
