Liverpool need to sort out their back line by signing top players this summer or they can forget about challenging for the Premier League title next season.
They are the leading goalscorers in the league but due to theishaky defense, they are only fighting to finish in the top four.
Jurgen Klopp badly needs a world class center half to lead the back line next season and Dejan Lovren surely isn’t one.
The Croatian international has been inconsistent in the defense all season long but still, he has been awarded a new contract (Mirror) worth 25 million pounds ($32million).
Lovren will now be earning £100,000-a-week with the Merseysiders and after signing the new deal he told Liverpoolfc.com
“I think this is one special day for me and my family.”
“I think I am the happiest guy [in the world] today, it’s another dream come true. It was always my dream to stay as long as possible at one club that I love – and that is Liverpool.”
In 25 league appearances for the Reds in the current campaign, Lovren has only helped the team keep 7 clean sheets. Not to forget, he was absolutely terrible in the last league game against Crystal Palace.
Overall in 29 games (all competitions), the former Southampton star has scored two goals and provided an assist as well.
