Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has slammed Dejan Lovren following his poor performance against Watford earlier in the month. The Reds surrendered their unbeaten run to the league campaign with a humbling 3-0 defeat at Watford and Lovren had a forgettable performance at the heart of the club’s backline.
Lovren has dropped down the pecking order since the 2018 Champions League final where he was one of the top performers for the Reds. At the moment, he is currently the fourth-choice centre-back behind Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip and his position should remain the same barring a drastic change in fortunes.
The 2018 World Cup finalist has another 15 months remaining on his current contract and it appears certain that he would push for an exit at the end of the campaign. Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have been credited with an interest from the Premier League while Lazio are prepared to lure the Croatian to the Serie A.
After spending nearly six years with the Reds, Lovren would surely want a fresh challenge away from the Premier League. Lazio have helped in reviving the careers of Lucas Leiva and Luis Alberto – formerly of the Reds and Lovren could fancy a similar route during the summer transfer window.
