Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has emerged as a transfer target for Juventus, according to Sky in Germany.
The Croatia international has been out of favour at Anfield since the 2018 World Cup, and speculation has been rife about his future this summer.
AS Roma and AC Milan have both been credited with an interest, but talk has died down of late.
Now though Juventus are apparently interested, despite having signed Matthijs de Ligt earlier in the summer.
Giorgio Chiellini has picked up a serious knee injury in training for which he will need surgery as reported by BBC Sport, and the Bianconeri are after cover for the Italian veteran
Jerome Boateng and former player Medhi Benatia are also on their radar, and the club have until Monday’s deadline to complete a deal.
Given the injury record of Joe Gomez, perhaps Liverpool should be looking to keep Lovren since they wouldn’t be able to replace him.
The Reds do have Sepp van den Berg but he is obviously very young and hasn’t made a first-team matchday squad yet.
£100,000-a-week star Lovren (Spotrac) has proven to be quite error-prone over the years, but letting him depart at this point would be a risk, especially when he can be a capable defender on his day.
