A representative of Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has held a meeting with officials from AC Milan, according to reports in the Italian media.
Predrag Mijatovic, who works as an intermediary for Lovren’s agent Vlado Lemic, is said to have visited the Rossoneri’s offices in Italy.
It has been suggested that the subject of conversation was Lovren, with new Milan director Zvonimir Boban present to discuss the Liverpool defender.
Boban was believed to be hopeful of discussing another of Lemic’s clients, Real Madrid’s Luka Modric, but it appears Lovren is a likelier signing.
Milan have lost out to Schalke for Stuttgart’s Ozan Kabak and are now weighing up a move for the Reds centre-back as an alternative.
Lovren reportedly has a £25m asking price and that may prove a problem for the Serie A side who have recently been sanctioned for breaking UEFA’s Financial Fairplay regulations.
They have been banned from European competitions for a year and won’t participate in next season’s Europa League.
