Zenit St. Petersburg reportedly eyeing move for Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren
Speculation stemming from the English media this evening has linked Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren with a move to Zenit St. Petersburg.
The future of Reds’ stopper Lovren has been the subject of intense speculation for some time now.
On the back of a difficult campaign last time out, during which the Croatian managed just 11 Premier League starts, reports were rife throughout the summer that Liverpool had opened to the idea of allowing Lovren to move on.
Jurgen Klopp will let Dejan Lovren leave Liverpool if interested clubs are ready to meet a valuation which will rise to £20m.

In the end, however, a lack of sufficient offers eventually saw the 31-year-old forced to stay put.
The 2019/20 campaign, though, has again proven less than fruitful for Lovren from a playing standpoint.
A combination of injury troubles and competition for places has seen the former Lyon man notch starts in just 9 of Liverpool’s 35 league fixtures thus far.
As such, speculation surrounding Lovren’s future at Anfield has inevitably begun to resurface of late.
And, as outlined above, the latest word stemming from the media this evening has seen yet another outfit named as a potential landing spot for Lovren.
The club in question? Zenit St. Petersburg.
As per the reliable Paul Joyce of The Times, the Russian giants have added their name to the list of Lovren’s suitors.
No further information is provided, with it simply stated that Zenit are ‘interested in signing’ the Liverpool stopper.
As such, it now remains to be seen whether an offer in line with the demands of the transfer chiefs at Anfield is forthcoming.
Zenit St Petersburg interested in signing Liverpools Dejan Lovren.
