Dejan Lovren is happy at Liverpool and reckons he’ll sign a new contract to tie his long-term future to the club soon.
Liverpool have already extended Coutinho and Adam Lallana’s deals this term and want the Croatian to join them in penning a new deal.
Lovren endured a horrible start to his Anfield career, but has gradually improved and is now an automatic starter when fit.
He put in a strong performance against Everton on Saturday and will be key to our chances of a top four finish.
“Progress (on the contract) is going on and I’d say that hopefully everything will be clear in the next month,” Lovren told the Echo.
“Like I’ve said many times about my future, I’m really happy here. I’m settled after everything that happened in the beginning.
“I just want to improve every day here, show my quality and give my best for the club.”
Liverpool are expected to offload Mamadou Sakho permanently this summer, but will likely bring in a new defender as well to compete with Lovren and Joel Matip at the back.
If the new arrival is top notch, Lovren and Matip will be fighting it out to start alongside him, which will put our backline in a strong position – especially with Joe Gomez developing at a rate of knots.
