David Hughes urges Liverpool to replace Lovren with Ben White and save millions
According to a report by Liverpool Echo, David Hughes has urged Liverpool to sign Ben White as a replacement for Dejan Lovren in a move that would see the club potentially saving millions.
Lovren nearly joined Serie A outfit AS Roma last summer for a fee in the region of £15m. And with the summer transfer window approaching again, the report suggests that he could be on his way out for good this time.
The Croatian centre-back, who has featured 14 times for Liverpool this season, has struggled to displace the likes of Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk for a spot in the starting XI.
With his chances of regular game time up in the air, it does make sense from the player’s perspective to exit Anfield. However, if that happens, Liverpool would need to sign a replacement pronto. As things stand, we are light in that department and losing Lovren without a back-up option would spell disastrous.
The Brighton & Hove Albion youngster has enjoyed an exemplary spell with Leeds United this term – at least until the season got suspended till the end of April to deal with the coronavirus pandemic that has brought the world to a standstill.
