Paul Joyce from the Times has tweeted that Zenit St Petersburg are interested in Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren.

Lovren, who signed for Liverpool from Southampton for a transfer fee of €25.30 million, has been at the club for six years.

There has been nothing to suggest that Lovren will depart Liverpool come the end of the season.

However, clubs are reportedly showing an interest in the Croatia international. Zenit St Petersburg have apparently shown  some recent interest in Lovren.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

Lovren has only made 15 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions this season, which highlights that he is not a key player in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Lovren is now 31 years of age. We think that the club would be wise to sell Lovren, as he is at the backend of his career.

With that being the case, he is unlikely to improve. Lovren has a current market value of €16 million.

If Liverpool could sell him for the aforementioned fee, they could go out and invest in a younger centre-back.

However, as Lovren only has a year left on his current contract, the Reds might have to sell him for slightly less, as he could just leave on a free transfer come the end of the 2021-21 season.
