Liverpool have reportedly named their price for back-up defender Dejan Lovren with Roma and AC Milan linked with his services.

The form of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez last season meant that Lovren was restricted to just 18 appearances in all competitions.

The Croatian wasn’t in Liverpool‘s squad for their first match of the season as Jurgen Klopp’s side thrashed Norwich City 4-1 at Anfield.

And now the Liverpool Echo claims that Roma and AC Milan ‘registered their interest’ in Lovren as both Serie A sides attempt to strengthen their defence.

The report adds that Liverpool ‘would take €15million (£13.9m) plus bonuses taking the deal up to €20m for the centre-back’.

The transfer deadline is on August 23 in Italy, which gives Roma and Milan 11 days to wrap up a deal for Lovren.
