Report: AC Milan interested in Lovren

Recommended Posts

Another long serving player may be heading to the exit door with fresh reports saying that Dejan Lovren may be in the sights of Italian giants AC Milan.

Following the departure of Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno, The Mirror reports that representatives of the Croatian central defender have met with Milan officials over a summer switch for the 29 year-old.

 

Italian media have also reported that members of Lovren's management  team have been seen at AC Milan's training ground.

Predrag Mijatovic is a key representative for agent Vladimir Lemic who looks after some of the elite footballing talent from Eastern Europe including Luka Modric and Nemanja Matic to name just two.

It was believed that dialogue was opened between the parties when Milan executive Zvonimir Boban was very keen on signing Modric.

When that did not transpire and their number one defensive target Ozan Kabak joined Schalke, attention has turned to Lovren.

Lovren who has made 170 appearances in all competitions for the club, has another two years to run on his existing deal and it is believed that Liverpool would be looking at something in the region of £25 million for his services.

Since joining the Reds from Southampton in the summer of 2014, the central defender has been one of the most discussed players when he has taken to the pitch, and quite often in a less than complementary fashion.

While he was a constant figure under Brendan Rodgers and the early part of the Jurgen Klopp tenure playing in a number of big games along the way, the past season saw Lovren become a peripheral figure, firstly because of injury, and then due to the consistent performances of others.

It appears that the veteran is now placed fourth in the CB pecking order behind Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip, and Joe Gomez, while summer signing Sepp van den Berg is highly rated and believed to be a candidate for first team action despite only being 17yo.


While his on-field performances haven't reached the heights he would have liked, Dejan seems to be a great presence around the squad, always supportive of others, extremely passionate to the cause of the team and generally striking up great relationships with his teammates.

 

Talent is obviously a non-negotiable in terms of succeeding as a Footballer, but having the kind of personality that bonds people together in a team environment is also a crucial element.

I read that the reason why AC Milan haven't signed him yet is because of the valuation of the player by Liverpool. Surely it would be better to keep the player rather than sell him on the cheap?
