Dejan Lovren is on the verge of leaving Liverpool after six years at the club, according to reports.

Mohamed Bouhafsi of RMC Sport is reporting that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs that will see the Croatian defender join Zenit for a fee of €8.5, and that Lovren will sign a three-year contract with the club.

The 31-year-old joined Liverpool six years ago from Southampton but his time at Anfield has been tainted by high-profile mistakes that eventually saw him drop out of the first team for record signing Virgil Van Dijk. I mean, fair enough.

Lovren will leave Liverpool with a Premier League medal and a Champions League medal, having been a big part of the Jurgen Klopp revolution prior to Van Dijk’s arrival.
