Report: Milan resume talks with agent of Liverpool defender

By Madison Derian-Toth -

AC Milan could reportedly go back in for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovern after reportedly holding talks with his agent Vlado Lemic.

The Croatian has been on Milan’s radar for some time, but they initially prioritised other options due to the player’s high wage demands, coupled with Liverpool’s asking price.

Reports earlier in the month suggested though that Lovren’s agent Vlado Lemic was at Casa Milan – the club’s headquarters – discussing a potential move for his client to the Rossoneri.

New head coach Marco Giampaolo is apparently desperate to add another center-back to his ranks before the season gets properly underway, despite the impending arrival of Leo Duarte from Flamengo in an €11m deal.

After speculation surrounding Lovren had died down, Tutto Mercato (via now report that the Rossoneri could rekindle their interest.

However, Klopp has in the past made it perfectly clear he has no wish to cash in on the Croatian center-half and convincing him to sell could prove troublesome – with a £25m asking price touted.

Klopp seems content with keeping the player as his third choice center-back, with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez all ahead of him in the pecking order.
