Liverpool targeting Dejan Lovren's younger brother

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren could be joined by younger brother Davor, whose progress is currently being monitored at Anfield.

According to the Daily Mail, Davor impressed the Merseyside scouts during the U17 World Championships, which are currently taking place in Chile.

The Croatian youngster can operate on the wing or as an out-and-out striker and despite having a contract with Dinamo Zagreb, he has only made a handful of appearances for the reserve side in the second tier of his native country.

Not much else is known about the 17-year-old for the time being, but there is the possibility bringing in Davor could also help improve his brother's form for the club.

The elder sibling has endured a torrid time since he signed for the Reds from today's opponents Southampton for £20 million last year.

Susceptible to making horrific mistakes, Dejan was one of the much-maligned figures during Brendan Rodgers' reign as Liverpool manager.

The 26-year-old has been out with an ankle injury since the end of September and in his absence, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho have formed a reliable partnership at the heart of the Reds' defence.

The timing of Lovren's injury may have unfortunately coincided with the hiring of Jurgen Klopp, but it is unlikely he would have featured even if he was fully fit based on his recent form.

The chances of Klopp signing a player to help another are equally unlikely, particularly when it may prove easier just to sell the centre-back if his performances do not improve by January.
