Dejan Lovren is still a target for AC Milan but Liverpool’s asking price is making things difficult, a report claims.
Ricky Massara, Paolo Maldini and the rest of the Rossoneri leadership are looking to bolster the backline following the departure of Cristian Zapata.
According to a report on MilanNews.it, Lovren is still an idea for Milan, however they face a number of difficult obstacles in their pursuit of the Croatia international.
He is a player who has been chased for ‘several weeks’, but Liverpool’s asking price of €25million is described as a ‘serious obstacle’.
No discounts are likely to be offered, as Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp has an ‘important relationship’ with his former Southampton man.
However, an intermediary acting on behalf of Lovren – Vlado Lemic – did arrive at Casa Milan on Tuesday morning to discuss a potential move.
Milan know that a serious and important offer will be needed to convince the Premier League side to change their mind.
