Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren is a summer target for Italian giants Roma, Napoli and AC Milan, according to reports.
The 29-year-old has fallen down the Reds’ pecking order this season, making just nine appearances in the Premier League.
Injuries have played a part in his lack of game time for the Reds, but it is clear he is not favoured at Anfield and could be set for a move to Serie A when the transfer window opens.
According to the Daily Mail, the Croatia international is wanted by Roma and Napoli as a potential replacement for their own in-demand defenders, while AC Milan are also interested.
Roma are expected to lose Greek centre-back Kostas Manolas this summer, while Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly has been linked with a number of clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.
Despite hailing himself as one of the world’s top defenders after playing in the World Cup final with Croatia last summer, Lovren has failed to convince Liverpool fans or football pundits of his talent.
LATEST TRANSFER GOSSIP
The Reds spent £20million to sign Lovren from Southampton in 2014. His current contract is set to expire in 2021, although there is an option to extend it for a further year.
The Croatian has slipped behind Joe Gomez and Joel Matip in the Liverpool selection this season.
Although an injury to Gomez opened the door for Lovren to stake his claim to a more regular place in Jurgen Klopp’s team, injuries of his own have meant his chances to impress have been few.
Lovren has returned to fitness in recent weeks but Gomez is also nearing a return, which means he could be deemed surplus to requirements this summer.
