Liverpool are reportedly ready to make a formal approach for Lyon defender Dejan Lovren.

According to talkSPORT, the 21-year-old Croatia international has been transfer-listed by the Ligue 1 outfit as they look to raise transfer funds, and could be available for as little as £3 million.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport adds that Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has already 'held meetings' with Lyon representatives to discuss the potential signing of the promising centre-back.

However, it has been claimed Lovren may struggle to be granted a work permit to play for Liverpool, having appeared only eight times for Croatia thus far.


Elsewhere in their pursuit of defensive reinforcements, Liverpool remain confident they can complete a deal for Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique, although Alan Pardew is hopeful the Spaniard will stay at St. James' Park.

Liverpool have been chasing Enrique for a number of months as the Anfield club look for a long-term replacement for Paul Konchesky.

It had previously been claimed by Liverpool legend Phil Thompson that the Reds had agreed a fee with Newcastle for the 25-year-old, who is known to be keen to move to a club with greater European ambitions.
