Could Bayern make a surprise Lovren move?
The former Croatia international praised his compatriot for his performances in the World Cup as they booked their place in Sunday’s final against France this week with a win over England in the semi-finals.
“For me, Lovren is playing at a level similar to Jerome Boateng at the 2014 World Cup.” Kovac said.
Kovac recently took over the reins from caretaker manager Jupp Heynckes at the Bavarian club and is considering reshaping the squad he inherited at the Allianz Arena.
And his praise of Lovren could indicate that he is considering making a move to take his countryman to Germany this Summer, following an upturn in form for the center-back.
