The defender of the St. Petersburg club “Zenith” Dejan Lovren is close to moving to the French “Lyon”. It is reported on Sunday by L’Equipe.

The Russian club, according to the source, will receive €2 million for the 33-year-old Croatian footballer. The player’s agreement with Lyon is designed for 2 years. Lovren previously defended the colors of the French club from 2010 to 2013.

Dejan Lovren has been playing for Zenit since the summer of 2020. This season he has played 16 matches, scored one year and made one assist.

The leadership of the Russian Premier League is currently deciding on a possible move from UEFA to AFC (Asian Football Confederation). According to RPL President Alexander Dyukov, 100% of Russian clubs were in favor, provided that the transition actually takes place.

Later it became known that a special commission would be formed to assess the feasibility of such a decision.
