If the European leagues have their way, the season will resume behind closed doors by early May at the latest before wrapping up no later than June 30th. Then, the transfer window will swing open and everything will go back to normal.
And part of normal, of course, is lots and lots of transfer rumours for the rest of us to slog our way through. Most of which don’t have a hope in hell of coming to pass. To which end it appears The Express are looking to get a head start on.
That’s because today they’re claiming that not one but two top four aspirants are looking to raid Liverpool’s bench once the whole coronavirus thing is sorted and behind us and we can go back to focusing on what really matters.
Those two clubs are Arsenal and Tottenham. And that Liverpool bench player is none other than Dejan Lovren, the 30-year-old Croatian international who has found himself down the pecking order and fourth choice for the Reds this season.
As the story goes, Liverpool have signalled they’re willing to sell him this summer—which, to be fair, isn’t the biggest shock. And that they’ve set an £18M asking price that hasn’t put off the Spurs and Gunners—a bit more of a shock.
So. Will it happen? Probably not, but who really knows. After all, there’s little doubt Lovren would like to be more than fourth choice, and given his wages the Reds would surely welcome somebody throwing money at them for him.
