Liverpool are set to improve Dejan Lovren’s terms, having already extended Coutinho and Adam Lallana’s contracts this season.
The Croat has been with the club since 2014 and his current deal expires in 2019, but we are keen to tie the defender down for longer, reports the Guardian.
Lovren is 27-years-old and in his prime, so a new deal would take him well into his thirties.
The centre-back endured a miserable start to his Anfield career and was the butt of many jokes during his debut campaign, but has gradually improved and Jurgen Klopp rates him highly, even if many fans are still skeptical.
He’s a first-choice starter alongside Joel Matip, but even when the pair are on the field we’ve struggled at the back this term.
As a result, we’re likely to buy a top new centre-back this summer, with Virgil van Dijk a rumoured target, but with the prospect of European football, the squad still needs strengthening even if Klopp wants to keep the majority of his current batch.
