Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren will reportedly appear in court next week to answer a perjury charge, which carries a potential five-year jail sentence if he is found guilty.
The 28-year-old is alleged to have given false testimony when called to the stand as part of a football corruption trial.
Lovren has been accused of lying about the details of his 2010 switch from Dinamo to Lyon, and public prosecutors in Croatia are seeking clarity.
A public prosecutors' spokesman told the British newspaper: "The county prosecutor's office in Osijek is investigating Dejan Lovren on a suspicion of giving a false testimony."
The Croatia international has been used 21 times by Liverpool in all competitions this season.
