Liverpool are set to make a bid for Lyon’s center back, Dejan Lovren.
The Croat has been followed by Kenny Dalglish and his scouts for a while now and following the Reds’ defensive problems this season they are now ready to make a move for the player.
The French team are unlikely to oppose the transfer as they are in financial difficulties and need to raise cash following a deficit of £26 Million last year.
Lovren is 22-years-old and is seen as an ideal replacement for Jamie Carragher, who is expected to finish his playing career at the end of the current campaign.
Liverpool will need to shore up their defense if they are to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title and this transfer could prove to be their solution.
