Lovren has played 13 appearances in all competitions this campaign.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are one of the top teams in Europe interested PSG Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn, according to De Telegraaf reports.

The Dutch giants forward is one of most prized assets in the Eredivisie, with an offer of over £30million is expected to be his price tag.

The 21-year-old winger has found back of the net 11 times and provided 12 assists this campaign, outlining his attacking input.

Liverpool identified South American playmaker as an alternative for Coutinho

Liverpool head-coach Jurgen Klopp will likely reject the possibility of re-signing Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield this summer, amid reports that he has identified cut-price alternative in the shape of a Colombia national team star Juan Quintero.

According to reports in Spain, Barcelona playmaker is unsettled in La Liga and has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League.

Reports on Sunday claimed the South American was open to a return to the Premier League with the Red Devils emerging as a top suitor to lure Brazilian forward at the club.

However, it appears increasingly unlikely that German manager will blow the best part of the Merseyside Reds summer transfer budget to sign Coutinho.

That’s because the Merseyside Reds will instead look to activate the €26m release clause of Juan Carlos Quintero, according to the reports.

Quintero has been in stunning form for River Plate this campaign and his performance have brought him to the attention of the Gunners head-coach Unai Emery, who was believed to want him as a replacement for German playmaker Mesut Ozil.

But according to Don Balon, Liverpool are now frontrunners to get the deal done for the South American attacker.

It’s reported that Jurgen Klopp believes Quintero could prove a bargain signing for Liverpool, with the player’s deal at parent club Porto containing a release clause of just €26m (£22.5m).

Meanwhile, Liverpool have been also keeping tabs on another PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano who is also expected ot leave the Eredivisie side after the end of the current campaign.

After his impressive displays at the world-cup tournament, Lozano has been on the radar of top European teams and Liverpool have been one of their suitors.
