The 29-year-old centre-back has been used sparingly by Jurgen Klopp this season, with Joe Gomez chosen as the first-choice partner for Virgil van Dijk so far this season, despite playing a key role in Croatia reaching the summer’s World Cup Final in Russia.
And his time spent on the sidelines in the Premier League recently has prompted ESPN to link Lovren with a sensational move to the Nou Camp in January, with the La Liga giants experiencing something of a defensive crisis themselves.
However, regardless of how bad it gets in Catalan, there aren’t too many Reds fans who are willing to believe Messi and Lovren will be team-mates in the New Year:

The Lovren to Barca link is obviously bull. We aren't that lucky!

I know I'm late on this but if Barcelona really are in on Lovren, maybe a move for de Ligt (who was a supposed target for Barca in the summer) would make sense. Another young CB who can rotate in behind VVD & BJG. Plus it's another CB with initials! MdL

Apparently Barcelona are interested in Lovren. I would take £150m. He’s one of the best defenders in the world, according to himself.
And since they also want Moreno, we can also sell them Mignolet and Matip for £150m each. Clyne would be more expensive. #LFC

Do you think Lovren could cut it as a Barcelona player?
