According to Sky Sport reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, AC Milan have contacted Liverpool over a potential move for Dejan Lovren.
The 29-year-old played a key role in Croatia reaching the final of the 2018 World Cup but it would be fair to say that he is behind Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip in the pecking order when it comes to Liverpool centre-backs.
Lovren has his critics but could certainly thrive in a different setting.
You can relive Liverpool’s Champions League celebrations in glorious 2D thanks to the guys at 442oons in the video below…
And losing a player of his experience would weaken the European Cup holders unless Jurgen Klopp’s side bring another centre-back to Anfield this summer.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s fans can be seen below:
Klopp needs to forget sentiment for a minute, Lovrens a great guy and gives his all but after 5 years service and a champions league…in this ruthless business…got to accept the money

They can have him for free. Jokes aside, he could do alright in Italy

Please, AC Milan. Take Dejan Lovren. He’s the best defender in the world. He said it himself.
I’m begging you.
