Tottenham tipped to sign Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren
Former Leeds United defender and football pundit Danny Mills has backed Tottenham to win the race for Liverpool star Dejan Lovren in the summer window. (h/t Football.London)
Lovren has been linked with an exit from the Premier League leaders as he has fallen down the pecking order. Indeed, Jurgen Klopp has preferred Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip over the Croatian. And with just a year left on his contract, Lovren’s future has been cast in doubt.

And now, Mills has backed Tottenham to come out on top in the race for the 2018 World Cup finalist. (h/t Football.London)
“He would be an obvious replacement for Jan Vertonghen were he to leave Spurs this summer.”
Defence an issue for Mou and Spurs
It is no secret that the Tottenham defence has been found wanting on many occasions this season. Things have failed to get better under Jose Mourinho, with our team continuing to leak goals.
With Jan Vertonghen’s contract also set to expire at the end of the season, a new defender should be a top priority for the club heading into the next transfer window.

But given Lovren’s age and his recent performances, the Croatian might not be the right choice for the club moving forward. It remains to be seen if Spurs do launch a move for the Liverpool star or look at other alternatives.
