Klopp sanction transfer for £30m-rated star, player close to agreeing personal terms

Dejan Lovren is on the cusp of sealing a move with Serie A giants AC Milan, per reports.

Lovren has decided to call time on his spell with Liverpool and he has been heavily linked with a move to  Marco Giampaolo’s side.

At Liverpool,  Lovren has assumed the stature of a veteran defender. The player moved to the Reds from Southamption in the summer of 2014 and until last season, he was a regular for the side.

Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk formed a strong bond in defence for Klopp’s and this limited Lovren’s chances. He featured in 13 League games for the side, his lowest since joining the club.

Giampaolo is rebuilding a squad for Milan and he has been heavily linked with a move for some Premier League stars. According the Football Insider, the Croatian star is one the verge of agreeing personal terms with Milan, who have assured him of regular game time.

Jurgen Klopp is willing to allow the player leave but his £30million asking price has to be met by Milan, claims the reports.

If Lovren remains at Anfield next season, it is highly unlikely that he will get into the first team of the side.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Matthijs de Ligt but the Dutch star is closing in on a move to PSG.

If Lovren leaves, Liverpool will have to sign another centre-back.
