Lovren says West Ham target Caleta-Car can 'easily play in England'

Zenit St Petersburg defender Dejan Lovren is backing Croatia teammate Duje Caleta-Car to move to England.

The Marseille stopper was linked with West Ham United before the summer market shut last week.

Former Liverpool defender Lovren told La Provence: "In my opinion, Duje could easily play in England.

"He is physically very strong, stronger than other players. He will explode in a few years and become even stronger."

Caleta-Car, 24, attracted a €27m offer from West Ham in the final days of the transfer window.
