Next 'Hazard'? Liverpool want exciting attacker who's desperate to 'play at Anfield'. Klopp sent scouts already

Dejan Lovren made a solid return from injury last night in Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Bournemouth, and reports this week suggest that Jurgen Klopp is interesting bringing another member of the Lovren clan to Anfield.

According to the Daily Mail:

"Liverpool are monitoring Davor Lovren, the younger brother of defender Dejan.

"Club scouts watched Lovren twice in the opening fixtures of the U17 World Championships against Chile and USA".

Italian newspaper Tutto Mercato further adds:

"Liverpool have already fallen in love with [Lovren], who is considered to be one of Europe's best young talents".

Some info about Lovren Jr.

* Right winger, who can played on the left, and as a second striker.

* Current contract with Dinamo Zagreb expires in 2018.

* 18 appearances for various Croatia youth teams, and has played all three games in the U17 World Cup, which is currently ongoing.

* Very inexperienced, and is yet to make a single senior appearance for Zagreb. Currently plays in the UEFA Youth League.

* In May, Lovren revealed that Eden Hazard and Lionel Messi are his football role models.

* According to The Guardian's Croatian football expert: "He [Lovren] has quick feet, flair in abundance and is very direct, at times reminiscent of Eden Hazard".

* On the influence of his brother, Dejan: "He's always giving me advice, tells me to play my best and, most importantly, to play for the team. I want to be like him – to succeed in football. The only way to make that happen is through hard work."

* Last Season: Appeared to suggest that his goal is to play for Liverpool, when he tweeted: "I live...to play on Anfield with my bro!"

Seems to be a Liverpool fan, as the following tweets suggest:

In theory, if Liverpool sign Lovren Jr., he will have a major advantage when it comes to settling into the city/club, but right now, he's grossly inexperienced, so there's very little to get excited about.
