Dejan Lovren has told AC Milan that he would be open to a move this summer, with Sempre Milan reporting the Croatian gave the Serie A outfit the green light.

The 29-year-old has dropped to fourth in the Liverpool pecking order and will not be happy to spend the 2019/20 Premier League season on the bench as he did last season.

Sempre Milan report that although AC Milan have yet to make an approach to Liverpool, they have received the green light from Lovren as he wants to play more regularly.

 

The former Dinamo Zagreb defender only made 17 appearances all season which is considerably fewer than the 39 he made during the 2017/19 campaign.

Selling Lovren will mean Klopp needs to dip into the market to sign a new central defender which might prove tricky.

Finding someone of Lovren’s ability for £25m that will be happy to sit on the bench will be difficult.

That said, after Liverpool’s Champions League triumph, they will have the whole of Europe to choose from as players will be desperate to join the six-time European champions.
