The Croatian defender’s six-year stint at Anfield is set to come to an end when the newly crowned Premier League champions face Newcastle United in their final game of the season.
Lovren has divided opinion in his time with the Merseyside club and has blown hot and cold over the course of six years.
While he did improve after Jurgen Klopp took over as Liverpool boss, his error-prone nature meant he gradually fell down the pecking order at the club.
However, the veteran defender is reportedly a huge personality behind the scenes and is highly thought of by Klopp. Zenit have moved quickly to secure his signature and have agreed a transfer fee believed to be in the region of £11 million with the Reds.
The 31-year-old could make his final appearance against Newcastle United in the weekend, as he prepares to bid farewell to the club. Lovren has won four major honours with Liverpool, including the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League.
Additionally, the mercurial defender is also a FIFA World Cup finalist with Croatia, having played a pivotal role for Zlatko Dalic’s side in the 2019 edition of the tournament.
Liverpool will reportedly analyse the market for potential reinforcements and could add to their squad in the coming months. In terms of defensive additions, the likes of Brighton’s Ben White, Norwich City’s Jamal Lewis and Real Betis defender Aissa Mandi have been linked with the club.
The Premier League champions have also been linked with Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara, who looks set to leave the Bavarian giants this summer.
Klopp remains a big fan of the Spaniard and it remains to be seen if Liverpool agree a deal with the Bundesliga outfit in the coming months.
