One of the best defenders in the world (according to himself), Dejan Lovren has been the subject of some intense transfer speculation in recent weeks.
Reports have suggested Serie A giants Milan are interested in securing his signature for next season, but in an update from Sky Sports, it is understood Liverpool are not looking to sell the centre-back.
Indeed, it claims that the Reds have not set an asking price for the 29-year-old and have yet to be approached by the Italian side.

After hearing the news Lovren looks likely to stay at Anfield for the foreseeable future, fans of the Merseyside club took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the matter.
Many seemed rather welcoming of the news the Croatian would not be making an exit this summer and insisted that as a fourth choice option in central defence, he was as good as they come.
Some pointed out to his appearances in showpieces games like the World Cup and Champions League finals (2018) as evidence of his valuable experience at the highest level and questioned why he perhaps wasn’t rated as highly as others.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:
I have no issue with Lovren staying at Liverpool, he provides a good backup CB option

Lovren is as good as u can get for a fourth choice CB. Have Degsy for one more season and then after have Hoever or Van De Berg promoted

Lovren has played in CL final, Europa league final, World Cup final. After spurs defeat at Wembley Liverpool had best defensive record whichogren was part of and vvd didn’t play for nearly 3 months later. Won’t get much better unless you play silly money for a squad defender

i heard klopp in an interview saying how important he is in the dressing room (speaks 5 languages apprently). i know we all want new signings but realistically if we want gomez to kick on and weve got matip too ill be happy with him as a squad player

I like him when he’s good he’s great plus he has great rapport with the squad and with sturridge and Moreno now gone they want to keep the harmonious atmosphere at least for another season

Makes sense. He’s a good fourth choice imo, we’re not getting anyone else better as a fourth choice.
