TEAMtalk reported earlier this week that Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is wanted by a number of clubs ahead of the summer transfer window, with West Ham United amongst those in the running for the Croatian’s signature.
TEAMtalk has suggested that the Reds plan to let Lovren leave this summer. And he is reportedly attracting the attention of clubs from a number of countries.
However, the report has noted that Lovren – who earns £100,000-a-week at Anfield, according to Spotrac – is tempted by the opportunity to move to London, with Arsenal, Spurs and Crystal Palace joining the Hammers in the race.
Should first-team football prove to be Lovren’s priority when deciding his next move, the likes of the Irons and the Eagles will surely be in a good position to spring a surprise.
And should the Irons land Lovren, David Moyes will finally be able to celebrate signing the centre-back.
The Daily Mail reported back in 2014 that Moyes wanted Lovren while he was Manchester United boss.
Lovren had made an outstanding impact after joining Southampton the previous summer.
Unfortunately for Moyes, he had been sacked just over a month after the report emerged. Lovren would move to Anfield, and the West Ham boss had not exactly been in a position to sign him since.
But that may perhaps change this summer.
Having been denied the chance to try and sign him six years ago, perhaps Moyes will be more determined to make sure he gets his man this time around.
