Dejan Lovren is being investigated in his home nation of Croatia for giving false testimony in a court case.
The Liverpool defender is at the centre of a media storm in his homeland surrounding the trial of Zdravko Mamic, who is charged with drawing 116 million kuna (around £14m) from Dinamo.
Lovren is being looked, report Telegram, at over differences in his statements from the original investigation and the main trial, regarding monies paid at the time of his transfer to Lyon.
Croatian journalist Aleksandar Holiga notes that Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric is similarly in the midst of such a situation and indeed has already been charged.
CORRECTION: Lovren hasn't been charged yet. He is being INVESTIGATED for giving a false testimony. Modri? has already been CHARGED. And it seems certain that Lovren will, too – it seems that there's even more evidence against him.

At present there is no charge leveled against the Liverpool man, but the lingering possibility of it along with the investigation itself will naturally be weighing on the defender’s mind.
This all comes after Lovren only recently opened up on the difficulties off-pitch that he had been subjected to this season, including an attempted burglary on his home.
