Report: AC Milan interested in Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren

The Croatian could be offloaded by the Reds this summer and Italy looks like a possible destination.

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has emerged as a target for Italian giants AC Milan, according to Gianluca DiMarzio.

The Croatian defender was signed from Southampton for £20 million back in 2014 (BBC Sport), although he has fallen out of favour this season.

Lovren is currently the fourth choice central defender at Anfield behind Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

The 29-year-old featured just 18 times in all competitions during 2018/19, although he would leave the club with a Champions League winners medal around his neck.

Milan are in desperate need of a lift. They finished fifth in Serie A last season, missing out on a place in the Champions League in the process.

 

Lovren boasts years of experience and he could prove a solid addition to the Milan ranks.

TBR Verdict

The man who once told Sky Sports that he was ‘one of the best defenders in the world’ would be a welcome addition at the San Siro.

Of course, his self-acclaimed mantle is a little wide of the mark, but nonetheless, he’s a pretty decent defender.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp doesn’t really need him right now. In van Dijk, Matip and Gomez he has three capable defenders, whilst Lovren’s departure may allow a youngster to claim the role of fourth choice centre-half.

Liverpool paid £20 million for his services five years ago and might look to recoup that figure for the man paid £100,000 per week, according to Spotrac.
