Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has reportedly hinted on staying at the Anfield until the next season.
The 30-year-old had made just 11 appearances for the club in the last season.
Dejan Lovren has been heavily linked with a move to AC Milan this summer, but Liverpool defender has indicated that he will be staying at the Anfield.
According to reports in the Times, Liverpool is demanding a fee of £25m for the Croatian international, but it seems that AC Milan is unlikely to pay that amount for the defender.
Lovren joined Liverpool from Southampton in the summer of 2014.
Lovren, speaking to the club’s official website, said, “Like always it [day one of pre-season] was a little bit hard, but I’m glad that I’m here back. We need to prepare ourselves for the beginning of the season because the schedule is quite tight when you look at it. We will play already for two big, major trophies [in August] so it’s a great opportunity for us and all the fans around the world.”
The Croatian international is a good player who can provide an able backup to Van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.
Given the experience that Lovren possesses, Jurgen Klopp can count on him, and hence the Croatian should stay at the Anfield.
