Liverpool’s centre-back Dejan Lovren wasn’t involved with his country during the international break due to an injury he’s been unable to shake off, so spent last week in Tenerife and has been training on Merseyside this.
He could be back for the Merseyside Derby, but it’ll be up to Jurgen Klopp whether he’ll bring Lovren back to partner Joel Matip or stick with Ragnar Klavan, who’s been decent recently.
Lovren though has given his club manager some advice regarding the upcoming transfer market, encouraging him to take a punt on Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic.
Lovren told Croatian outlet Jutarnji: “We players do not know anything about [transfers] until it happens. That’s always the case.
“But a player like Perisic moving to Liverpool would be great.
“He is a top quality player.”
The 28-year-old has nine Serie A goals this term and has registered three assists from 23 starts, a pretty decent return.
He’s best used on the left, but is also happy on the right flank or in a no.10 role.
Perisic would be a decent addition to the squad, but for what he’d cost, he’s not a very ‘FSG’ signing, considering he’ll be 30 in a few years and will have lost his sell-on value.
We’re actually hoping we aim a little higher in the summer, hopefully having qualified for the Champions League.
