Liverpool Set Price Tag For Dejan Lovren Amid Interest From Italy

Liverpool will not sell defender Dejan Lovren for less than £25million this summer, according to reports in the local media.

AC Milan are said to have an interest in signing the Croatian international, although the Serie A side have yet to make a formal approach for the centre-back.

Lovren returned from last summer’s World Cup with a pelvis injury which meant he wasn’t fit for the start of the season.

It led to Joe Gomez taking his place alongside Virgil van Dijk in the first-team and the Croatian was unable to regain his position in the starting line up.

After Gomez’s injury in December, Lovren began to get more minutes on the pitch but a hamstring problem, picked up in the FA Cup defeat to Wolves, kept him out for two months.

During his absence, Joel Matip established himself in the starting eleven, meaning on his return the 29-year-old was used sparingly. By the end of the campaign, the defender had made just 18 appearances in all competitions.
