Latest Liverpool transfer news: Dejan Lovren’s salary is a problem for Serie A clubs
CalcioNapoli24 (h/t Daily Star) claims that Napoli are interested in the services of Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren. The report claims that AC Milan and Napoli are offering Lovren the chance of regular football.
The Croatian fell down the pecking order at Liverpool last season, with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip preferred to partner Virgil van Dijk.
The 29-year-old Lovren started 11 Premier League games and did a decent job throughout the campaign, however, the lack of games has left Lovren considering his future, according to the report.
Napoli can offer Champions League football for the centre-back while AC Milan will participate in the Europa League next season.
Milan News (h/t Daily Star) adds that Lovren’s representatives were in Milan to discuss a possible move to the San Siro. The report claims that Lovren is interested in playing for the Milan giants and a deal worth £25m is being discussed.
Klopp would have to enter the market to replace Lovren
Lovren has been a quality member of the side and has always given it his all. Should he decide to leave for regular football, we have to sign a replacement. Liverpool had some defensive headaches, with fractures for Matip and Gomez last season, while Lovren also suffered a few injuries.

The Reds cannot go into the season with only three senior centre-backs, and it will be interesting to see what actions are taken regarding Lovren in the summer.
