3 Reasons Why Liverpool Should Sign This Budget Defender From Southampton

Liverpool definitely need reinforcements in the summer transfer window and there are some places in the team which need immediate attention. The need for a defensive midfielder has already been taken for with the transfer of Emre Can and if Alberto Moreno joins them, the left back crisis could get solved. But Liverpool’s main area of concern was the defence last season and they must address that if they are to excel next season. Liverpool, thus need centre backs who would rise upto the situations and do better for the team than the current defenders. Liverpool have already taken a look at few options and one of the most pragmatic is Dejan Lovern of Southampton. We take a look at three reasons why we feel Lovern would be a fit at Liverpool.

1. The age factor

Liverpool have abstained themselves from any players who do not have a lot of years ahead of them and have decided to go for players who can be nurtured into stars of the future. Dejan Lovern is just 24 years old and he has a long playing career at the club in front of him, which makes him a lucrative proposition. Apart from that Liverpool would not have to pay overtly for Lovern as they are already in the negotiations with Southampton for the transfer of Lallana and a formula can be worked out, as the clubs would like to believe. Getting a player of Lovern’s quality for a cheap price would be a beneficial situation for Liverpool and they should not let go of this opportunity to sign Lovern.
