The fact that Dejan Lovren and reported Liverpool transfer target Mateo Kovacic are both Croatian, friends from the national side, and away on international duty together is totally irrelevant!
Because our £20m centre-back uploaded a picture of the two means the younger man is definitely signing this summer, right?
Well – sadly – no. No it doesn’t.
But this hasn’t stopped Liverpool fans bombarding Twitter with their reactions to the picture, naturally…
Check out Lovren’s Instagram post, and the online reaction, here!

if Lovren helps us get Kovacic, I will start a petition for all LFC fans to forgive him and absolve him of everything. #lfc

Dejan Lovren doing better business this summer than Rodgers — The Shankly Express (@ShanklyExpress) June 2, 2015
Best assist of Lovren’s life could be getting Kovacic here. Unlikely as it may be.
