The 30-year-old joined Liverpool from Southampton in the summer of 2014, for a fee believed to be worth £20 million, according to BBC Sport, and he has gone on to make 170 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.
Lovren has been a decent servant for the Reds, but he lost his place to Joel Matip last season, and it now seems as though he's behind the Cameroonian, Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez in the central defensive pecking order at Anfield.
The problem for Jurgen Klopp is that if one or two of those names suffer a serious injury, Lovren is exactly the type of player who they will need.
So selling him could be a very big mistake.
That's the feeling some Liverpool fans have anyway...
This make shift bs needs to stop from Klopp. End up with Fab at CB. Millie at LB. Can't let him go now. Even tho he's a liability we need four senior cbs at least till January.— Liam Keane (@liamothebear1) August 13, 2019
Why tf are Liverpool so intent on self sabotage?— Umer (@UmerTariiq) August 13, 2019
awful decision to let him go this late in the season and naïve on the managers part. Last season we had Matip and Gomez out and if same situation happened again then who would come in? Fabinho, Van Berg? That's stupid.— Darragh Martin (@MartinDarragh) August 13, 2019
Absolutely ridiculous decision to let him go now.. wtf?— James Buckley (@jamesbuckley92) August 13, 2019
