Liverpool are set to demand around £18 million for centre-back Dejan Lovren this summer, according to Italian outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

The Reds signed Lovren from Southampton for £20 million back in 2014, which ultimately means that they would only lose £2 million if they were to sell him for the reported £18 million.

Lovren has just over a year left on his current contract, which means that Liverpool will more than likely look to move him on this summer.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

If the Reds only lost £2 million on a player that has been at the club for six years, they would have pulled off a miracle for the following reasons.

Across the 2019-20 season, Lovren has suffered a number of injuries, which has meant that he has only started the nine Premier League games.

Lovren is currently 30 years of age, meaning that he is more than likely not going to improve.

A transfer fee of £18 million would be a reasonable sale for the Reds when one considers that Lovren’s best days are behind him.

However, the transfer market has obviously changed since 2014, meaning that Liverpool are in a strong position to demand £18 million for Lovren, as he is an experienced player.
