Liverpool Defender Dejan Lovren Wanted By Roma In £19m Transfer

 Lovren is no longer in Klopp's first-choice defensive pairing

Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren is now a top transfer target for Roma.

Having so far unsuccessfully chased Toby Alderweireld for a move from Tottenham Hotspur, the Italian club are considering the names further down their wishlist.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lovren is available for around £19million.

Roma hope to knock that figure down thanks to the perceived strong relationship between the two clubs – whose owners Tom Werner and James Pallotta are good personal friends.

So far, this has manifested itself in helping Liverpool bring Mohamed Salah and Alisson Becker over from the Stadio Olimpico.

Lovren lost his way under Jurgen Klopp last season, falling behind Joel Matip in the pecking order and struggling to get back into the side after playing in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in January.

What’s more, the Croat is now 30 and suffered a number of injury problems during the campaign.

But he isn’t the only man on Roma’s shortlist, this latest report naming Monaco duo Kamil Glik and Jemerson as targets – and the Lupi aren’t totally giving up on Alderweireld.
