With three teams reportedly eyeing Lovren, Liverpool could well recoup £20m outlay

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is reportedly being eyed by no fewer than three Serie A clubs.

The World Cup finalist may not have been a regular for the Reds this term, but he appears to be a man in demand.

He has made just 12 appearances so far this season including nine starts in the Premier League, with pelvis and hamstring injuries having prevented him from becoming Virgil van Dijk’s regular partner.

Arguably he is now the club’s fourth choice centre-half, with Joel Matip having impressed in his and Joe Gomez’s absence.

According to The Sun, Napoli, Roma and AC Milan are all keen on the Croatia international this summer.

TBR’s view

With three teams interested in the services of Lovren, the chances of Liverpool recouping their £20 million outlay on the player are high.

 

That, of course, was the figure paid to Southampton back in 2014 (BBC Sport).

If the interest is genuine, then Liverpool can try and start a bidding war for the defender in order to drive up the price.

He has a contract until 2021 which gives the Reds a strong negotiating position. The Sun claim he could fetch £25million.

If they can get close to what they paid for him then that would be great business, as Lovren has proven to be somewhat error-prone in recent seasons.

He is capable of outstanding defensive displays from time to time, but occasionally has lapses that put the team under pressure.
