Lovren

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has praised his teammates who are currently in the England national team.

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez were all called up for the national team assignment.

The English national team is expected to play Croatia in the UEFA Nations League and the Liverpool defender is eager to play against his English teammates.

Lovren is of the belief that the English side have got a great team and with his Liverpool team-mates, they can dominate for the next ten years coming under manager Gareth Southgate.

He, therefore, stated that the encounter between his Croatia side and England will be difficult to call because his team have lost three players to retirement after the World Cup.

The likes of striker Mario Mandzukic, defender Vedran Corlika and Keeper Danijel Subasic will no longer be seen in the Croatian national team as they have decided to hang their boots for national team football.

Lovren noted that the Croatian national team now has new generation players who will mix up with older players like Luka Modric and Rakitic, hence there will be a need for blend within the team before it can return to the level they were at the World up.

Croatia had reached the finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia but were denied the trophy by France who were the better team.

Brazilian international David Luiz seems to be in a transfer mess after it is reported that negotiations between his representative and the club for a new deal stalled.

This means that the Brazilian international might be on his way out of the club which is against his wish as he hopes to spend longer time at the Stamford Bridge.

It is reported that David Luiz requested for an extension in his contract beyond a year which is against the doctrine of the West London side as he could only be handed a year deal because of his age.

The career of the Chelsea star came alive again this season with the coming of manager Maurizio Sarri and became one of the best in the club.

He has hinted that talks are still ongoing as he hopes to convince the club to hand him more than a year contract, stressing that he has big love for the player.

He noted that he is enjoying the game and life in general at London which makes it difficult for him to make a decision to leave the club.

It would be recalled that the 31-year-old had left the Stamford Bridge in 2014 to PSG with a record fee of £50 million only to return after two years.

jean-Clair Todibo

One of Liverpool’s best central defenders Joe Gomez has been injured and with his absence set to be a major blow for the Reds, there is a need to find a replacement for him.

However, the Reds have reportedly decided to step up a bid for long-term target and Toulouse defender Jean-Clair Todibo, according to a report by The Express.

Though he is 18 years of age, he has been tipped to be one of the most promising defenders in Europe with the impressive performances he has shown and most importantly, making a first-team appearance for his side.

He has got the ability to pair with former Southampton central defender Virgil Van Dijk according to rating by pundits and that is why the Merseyside club have looked his direction.

However, Liverpool have got Joel Matip who started in their last game and Dejan Lovren to fill the game but there are insinuations that the German manager favours Jean-Clair Todibo ahead of the duo.

Jean-Clair Todibo has scored a goal with the 10 games under his belt this season and has been impressive as well.

With the winter transfer window set to reopen in coming weeks, Liverpool will hope to land the young lad so as to continue their dominance for a title win this season.
