LFC reportedly plan to offer Lovren as part of Koulibaly deal

Apparently the club are planning to boost the defensive side of our squad, if it needs improving any further, by offering Dejan Lovren in exchange for Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Reds are blessed with the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip but many fans feel that Dejan Lovren is the weak link.

And with neither Matip or Gomez yet able to prove that they can stay fit for a full season, Liverpool will be looking to replace Lovren when he inevitably moves on this summer, after coming close to leaving in 2019.

So it's an interesting claim from tuttosport (via the Daily Mail) who reckon that, in an attempt to lower his price, and offer Napoli a cheap, direct replacement for their experienced centre back, Liverpool will offer Lovren as a part-exchange.

How much he'd be worth in such a deal is open to question, but his price last summer was set at around £20 million. It's likely to be around £5 million less than that right now.

Supposedly Napoli look set to lower their price but will reject anything below £60 million, which is perhaps why Liverpool now see a way in and offering Lovren could lower that price further still.
