Slaven Bilic Looking To Sign Two Croatian Internationals?

Russian media have begun to speculate that FC Lokomotiv Moscow’s Croatian coach Salven Bilic is on the verge of signing two current Croatian internationals.

Bilic has struggled in his first season in charge of the Russian side and recent reports in the media suggest that he will bring in two players he knows a lot about already to try to resurrect the side.

Dinamo Zagreb’s Brazilian-born midfielder Sammir and Lyon defender Dejan Lovren are rumoured to be on the radar of the former Croatia coach.

“Russian clubs have followed Dejan since he was playing for Dinamo Zagreb. A few times I have had contact with representatives from clubs from Russia, but I always send them on to Lyon. The French still do not want to sell him, despite their financial problems. But, if an attractive offer came their way, I am sure the club would not stand in the way,” said Lovren’s agent Nicky Vuksan to Tportal.

If the speculation comes to fruition then Lokomotiv FC would have four Croatian internationals in its ranks, with Dario Kresic and Vedran Corluka already at the club.
