Dejan Lovren looked poised for a Liverpool exit last summer and has now been linked with a move at the end of the current campaign but the defender has dropped a hint that he might be staying at Anfield a little while longer.
The 30-year-old has found his first-team chances limited over the last two seasons after falling behind Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.
AC Milan and Roma are among the clubs mooted as possible destinations for the Croatian centre-back, but it seems he is open to staying put at Anfield.
Lovren told the club's website: "It’s important to have a mix between really young players, the middle [age] players and the experienced players. I think we have it, this is the great balance.
“We are used to playing big finals and the big games and we know how to manage it.
"Even when we are 1-0 down we know what to do. This is why it’s important to have a balance in the team.
“If we keep the important players and the core of the team here for many years, we will only grow.”
Liverpool may have other ideas however, given Lovren's current contract is due to expire at the end of next season.
The club would no doubt prefer to sell Lovren on this summer rather than potentially lose him for nothing in 2021.
Such a scenario has presented itself with Adam Lallana, who is expected to leave Liverpool in the coming months after failing to agree a new deal.
