Dejan Lovren targeted for a January switch to Serie A – report

Posted by

Liverpool centre half Dejan Lovren has been linked with a January move to AC Milan, following an injury to Italian defender Mattia Caldara.

The Italians have had a relatively poor start to the season as they sit tenth in the Serie A table and really haven’t looked like the Milan we’ve come to expect for some time now.

Adding Lovren to the ranks would certainly be a boost for the Rossoneri – don’t let his game time at Anfield fool you, the Croatian international is a more than capable defender.

Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip are two world-class centre backs and young Joe Gomez is well on way to joining them in that – three facts that aren’t Lovren’s fault.

It’s Tuttosport (via Sky Sports) that are linking the Liverpool defender with Milan. The Italians were previously put off by the Reds’ £20million asking price, but both sides may re-evaluate this winter.

I’d suggest that Jurgen Klopp wouldn’t want to let Lovren go, and the £20million price tag would not be lowered, as he’s filled in for Matip well enough this season.

And with both Matip and Gomez’s injury records, the boss knows he’d had to replace Lovren should he leave. That being said, Klopp won’t want to keep around a player that wants to leave.
