Liverpool Consider Shock Sale Of Defender For Just £14m

Lovren

Liverpool will let Dejan Lovren leave for an initial €15m (£14m), according to the Liverpool Echo. The Reds would want any deal to include another €5m (£4.6m) in add-ons but the figure is still surprisingly low for the 30-year-old.

Clubs in Italy, including Roma and AC Milan, are said to be interested in the Croatian international, and with Italy’s transfer window yet to close, they could snap up the defender this summer.

Lovren did not make the squad for the opening game of the season against Norwich on Friday. Joe Gomez was selected to start with Joel Matip named on the bench.

Selling the club’s fourth choice centre-half would be a major concern for fans. Most remember the club’s struggles midway through last season when Fabinho had to play in the backline.

Still, it appears manager Jurgen Klopp would be open to selling Lovren, with new recruit Sepp van den Berg possibly being given the chance to make the step up.
