If they fail to get Chris Smalling, giallorossi officials hope to recruit Croatian Dejan Lovren.
The main club thinks of the Deputy World Champion as an alternative to Chris Smalling. The latter plays at home on loan this season, but he is expected to return to Manchester next August.
Lovren (30) still has a year on the Anfield side. But since he is no longer in Jurgen Klopp’s little paper, it is certain that the Merseysiders will not be very demanding for his services.
If he joins the Louve, Lovren finds his Croatian teammate there, Nikola Kalinic.
