Report: Klopp makes decision over Liverpool defender amid AC Milan links

By Oliver Fisher -

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made a decision on the future of defender Dejan Lovren amid recent links with AC Milan, a report claims.

Lovren came into the season seemingly as the fourth choice centre-back at Anfield, however a combination of an injury to Joel Matip and Joe Gomez’s poor form means the Croatian has started three of the last four Premier League games.

Milan meanwhile have been linked with a move for Lovren since the summer, and we reported that Elliott Management are ready to cede to Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban’s demands to bring more experience to the team in the January window.

That was then followed up by reports late last month from Tuttosport suggesting that Milan will go back in for the 30-year-old should Mattia Caldara’s return to action not go according to plan.

However, an update from Football Insider claims that the centre-back has now been put back on the ‘not for sale’ list at Liverpool, at least until next summer.

The former Southampton man has made 175 appearances for the Reds up until present.
