Leverkusen want Lovren on loan

Bayer Leverkusen are interested in signing Dejan Lovren of Liverpool on loan, according to Bild.

After the Croatian failed to make the long-awaited deal with AS Roma, with Roma looking for a loan-type deal and Liverpool hoping to make a permanent transaction, the centre-back was literally left high and dry.

Since 2009 Lovren has played for Lyon, Southampton and Liverpool, and the fact that he has experience playing for high-profile football clubs makes him very appealing to the German club, who are hoping to strengthen their backline. Leverkusen’s manager Peter Bosz is also interested in a season-long loan and are willing to pay £2.75million for Lovren. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be open to such a temporary solution to the problem given that it wasn’t the case when Roma came calling, with the German outlet believing he no longer has a place for Lovren on the team and wants to see the back of him for good.
