Croatia international could become second Liverpool signing - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Lyon defender Dejan Lovren in their pursuit of summer reinforcements.

According to The Telegraph, the 21-year-old Croatia international is on the radar of the Reds as they look to add a centre-back to their ranks during the transfer window.

Liverpool had made an attempt to sign Blackburn teenager Phil Jones and, despite Rovers accepting an offer from the Merseysiders, the 19-year-old opted to join Manchester United.

Some bookies had even suspended betting on Jones moving to Anfield, but Liverpool were pipped to the post by the fierce north west rivals, which has led Kenny Dalglish to look elsewhere.

Lovren is reportedly a target for the Liverpool boss, as is Birmingham centre-back Scott Dann and Paris Saint-Germain youngster Mamadou Sakho, with the Frenchman also a target for Arsenal.


While at least one central defender looks set to join Liverpool before the start of the new season, Sotirios Kyrgiakos will reportedly leave Anfield during the summer.

TalkSPORT suggests the Greece international will see his two year Anfield stay ended as Liverpool make room for younger alternatives to the 31-year-old.
