Real Betis defender tweets and deletes photo of himself in Liverpool shirt

Dejan Lovren arrived at Liverpool back in the summer of 2014 for a price tag of £20 million.

A fee which would see him become Liverpool’s most expensive defender or at least until Virgil Van Dijk came in.

The Dutchman has firmly cemented his place in the Liverpool XI, frequently joined by Joel Matip or Joe Gomez, rendering the Croatian into more of a back-up role.

With just over a year left in his contract, Liverpool are looking to cash-in on the 30-year-old defender.

The Reds are now searching the market to fill the void left by the possible departure of the Croatian.

According to the reports, Liverpool have identified a like-for-like replacement in Real Betis defender Zouhair Feddal.

The Moroccon could add much-needed depth to the Liverpool defense as well as provide competition to the likes of Matip and Joe Gomez.

Like Lovren, Feddal has just over a year left in his contract, and Betis would be willing to let the 30-year-old leave as long as they receive the full €2.5m they paid for him back in 2017.

The Moroccan himself seems quite eager to move to the Merseyside club as he recently tweeted out a picture of himself photoshopped in a Liverpool jersey and immediately deleted it –

Feddal soon came up with a follow-up tweet claiming that his account was hacked, but the fans remain suspicious of his action.
