Many Tottenham Hotspur fans were laughing on Twitter after journalist Ricky Sacks relaid a transfer link from La Lazio Siamo Noi claiming that the north London club are ‘very keen’ on signing Dejan Lovren.
Spurs may be looking for a new central defender in the summer, especially if Jan Vertonghen leaves at the end of his contract. Indeed, Lovren is currently worth £18 million according to Transfermarkt but this price may be lower in a few months considering that he will turn 31 years of age and will have just year left on his deal. Furthermore, the Croatian international has only made 14 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions this season, proving unable to consistently oust either Joe Gomez or Virgil van Dijk.
Could you seriously see Dejan Lovren signing for Tottenham?
Of course, the season may not be over by the time the window hits, so it will be interesting to see how any potential transfers like this one could develop. However, this did not stop many Spurs fans laughing at the speculation on Twitter, with one fan even calling Lovren the ‘worst defender ever’:
