Liverpool to extend Dejan Lovren contract until 2022

Liverpool are set to trigger an option to extend Dejan Lovren's contract by another year and so keep him at the club until June 2022.


The Croatian's contract will be extended as long as he stays at the club at the end of this transfer window.


Zenit St Petersburg and Roma are reportedly interested in signing Lovren, yet both of the clubs have still not made any contact with Liverpool.


The 31-year-old joined the Reds from Southampton back in July 2014 for £20 million.


Since then, Lovren has had a turbulent time at Liverpool from a pretty decent start, and is now largely a bit-part player, with Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk all before him in the pecking order.


This season, Lovren has made just ten appearances for the club in the Premier League, as Liverpool won the title.


Ever since his league debut, Lovren has made 131 league appearances for the club, and 185 appearances for Liverpool in total.


Roma are in the hunt for a centre-back to replace the on-loan Chris Smalling and the ageing Federico Fazio.
