Michael Edwards will be hard at work this summer. The sporting director will be offloading the deadwood in the Liverpool squad, squeezing hapless buyers for every last penny – ‘yes that’ll be £60m for Harry Wilson please’. With Spurs reportedly interested in one of our defenders, Liverpool could use Dejan Lovren to help land Kopites’ dream signing of Son Heung-min.
Liverpool signed Dejan Lovren in 2014, paying Southampton £20m for the Croatian.
The Croatian has been a loyal servant and for the most part has been solid at the back but there has been far too many errors.
It was apparent after a couple of seasons that Dejan wasn’t the long term answer in the middle of defence, the signing of Virgil van Dijk and the ascent of Joe Gomez has left the World Cup finalist as fourth choice.
La Lazio Siamo Noi has claimed that Lazio are chasing Lovren but Arsenal and Spurs are also in pursuit.
If Tottenham want the defender then Liverpool should look at using Lovren to help land Son Heung-min.
Ok, let’s admit it off the bat – this is a pipedream signing. We have extolled the virtues of the South Korean time and time again.
Kopites have in the past expressed their admiration of the forward and have pleaded with the club to make an approach for the 27-year-old.
The thinking is that he would be the ideal signing because he is a typical Jürgen Klopp player: he is a determined and willing runner, he is lightning quick and he is technically gifted.
Signing Son Heung-min would also lay down a massive marker, we would be stamping our authority on the league by weakening our rivals, just as Manchester United did repeatedly during their pomp.
Son would cost a king’s ransom but if Lovren was involved we could offset the cost…maybe, just maybe?
