Lovren linked with Zenit switch

Dejan Lovren has been linked with a summer move to Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg.

The 31-year old Croatian international still has 12 months left on his current contract at Anfield, but Liverpool are willing to let him go for the right price.

Lovren has become something of a bit-part player under Jurgen Klopp this season, making just 15 appearances in all competitions. Lovren, who played in the World Cup final for Croatia two years ago has indicated he is willing to stay on Merseyside, but Zenit are ready to tempt him with the prospect of regular first-team football and the chance to play in next season’s Champions League.

The defender joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014 in a £20 million deal, when Brendan Rogers was still manager of the club. He has made 185 appearances for the club, but now finds himself behind Virgil van Dyck and Joe Gomes in the pecking order, with Joel Matip the preferred alternate when wither of them is unavailable.
