AC Milan are reportedly one of many clubs keeping tabs on Croatia international Dejan Lovren.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, AC Milan are considering a move for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren.
The Croatia international was signed by Liverpool in July 2014 from Southampton for a fee of 25.3 million euros. The 29-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.
Lovren made 170 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool, scoring 7 goals and supplying 4 assists in return.
The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best defenders in Croatia. His record for Croatia is also impressive. Lovren has scored 2 goals in 53 matches for Croatia at senior level.
AC Milan are looking to shore up their defensive options and Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren happens to be a target. They are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
According to Football Italia, “Milan are reportedly scoping out a potential deal for Liverpool and Croatia defender Dejan Lovren. According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, Milan are ‘probing’ Lovren to see how much he would cost in terms of transfer fee and wages. The 29-year-old has played 170 times for Liverpool since moving from Southampton in the summer of 2014, winning the Champions League last season. However, injuries and the arrival of Virgil van Dijk limited him to just 18 appearances in 2018-19.”

Liverpool are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defender, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
The 29-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Milan squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.
