Liverpool target three players in search of Lovren replacement

Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen his squad for next season, and AS are suggesting the German boss has lined up three possible replacements for centre-back Dejan Lovren: Atletico Madrid's Jose Maria Gimenez, Inter Milan's Alessandro Bastoni and RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano.

Lovren is out of contract in 2021 but is expected to target first-team football elsewhere this summer, and Klopp wants a player who is as comfortable as Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez in the air and on the ball.

Gimenez is the perfect fit, though his contract runs out in 2023 and has a buy-out clause of €120 million. However, the Uruguay international has had an injury-hit season and has played only 16 times, including a cameo role at Anfield when Atletico stunned the Champions League holders. Gimenez might consider his options if he continues to struggle for first-team football.

Eagle-eyed readers will have seen Upamecano's name on these pages linked with several clubs across Europe, while 20-year-old Bastoni has impressed so much at Inter that he has replaced Diego Godin at the San Siro.

Meanwhile, with Lovren looking likely to leave, he could have his pick of Lazio, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the summer, with the Italian side joining the north London rivals in the hunt for his signature.

The Croatian's contract expires in 2021, but with Liverpool on the hunt for a new centre-back, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Lovren won't struggle for options when the 2019-20 season finally comes to an end.

Lazio enquired about Lovren's services in January but were unwilling to pay the €20m asking price. The Italian club are expecting the price to have dropped, however, as he continues to play second fiddle to Van Dijk and Gomez and as Liverpool grow increasingly eager to sell.

The 32-year-old is said to be keen for a new experience before he hangs up his boots, which suggests he might favour a move away from England.

============================================
Are any of those mentioned better than Lovren?
Have not really seen them play except Upamecano, who is big and strong.
I take my chances
Lovren is cmi

I thought we have a few good CB youngsters?

I am sure any of them are better than Lovren

Don't know how much lfc will pay a cb. Likely more will be spent in midfield or attack. With Werner, Sancho,havertz bring rumored.

Just askin if anyone has bought jerseys from Carousell before.

Their prices are $30 - $40 and claim to be authentic. With tags intact and all.

I wanna buy this season's but wonder if its too good to be true.

Anyone has experience?

I don't think we will pay above 70M for any player now, which is what Sancho or Havert will cost. Werner, a centre back if Lovren leaves and maybe a reserve left back.
if Adrian leaves, then maybe another back up goalkeeper.
We have also been linked with Fabian Ruiz, but he will be ex....

in this case, all european countries get a "hindsight" in advance from China Wuhan. England further gets it from Italy and France.

and they still close it few weeks too late.

now it is up to U.S. to do the lockdown.

No one expects that it will be them. Plus, the last point of reference was SARS.
