Liverpool are lining up a summer move for Espanyol centre-back Leandro Cabrera, according to reports in Spain. The 29-year-old joined Espanyol in January but following their relegation from La Liga, he could soon be on the move once again.

The Reds are seemingly willing to allow Dejan Lovren leave this summer if a buyer can be found and Cabrera could be a replacement for Lovren. Lovren isn’t happy being the fourth choice at Anfield, but Cabrera might be more willing to fill that role in the squad. He would likely do so for a lower salary than the Croatian is currently earning.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are unlikely to sell Lovren without having a replacement lined up and signing Cabrera could allow them to cash in on the Premier League winner and grant him his wish of a move away.
