Signed in the summer of 2014 from Southampton, Lovren is the second-longest serving player in the Red’s squad after captain Jordan Henderson.
Beset by injuries since the beginning of last season, Lovren has found himself behind Joel Matip and Joe Gomez to partner Virgil van Dijk in the defence.
Lovren has performed admirably whenever needed and has proven to be a vital option in reserves for Liverpool.
The Croatian star is a strong presence in the dressing room and shares a close rapport with Mohamad Salah. (h/t Liverpool Echo)
Lovren almost moved to Roma in the summer of 2019, only for him to stay after having a conversation with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. (h/t Mirror)
It proved to be an inspired decision as injuries to Matip and Gomez have led to Lovren finding game time easier to come by. He has started in 8 games for Liverpool this season and has performed admirably.
With Joel Matip still injured and Liverpool till fighting for major honours on multiple fronts, Klopp will not sell the defender in January. However, a summer transfer could be on the cards. (h/t ESPN)
