Liverpool have named their asking price for Dejan Lovren

Dejan Lovren

Liverpool (opens in new tab) are willing to sell Dejan Lovren if their £13.9m asking price is met, reports the Liverpool Echo (opens in new tab).

Serie A sides Milan (opens in new tab) and Roma (opens in new tab) have both expressed an interest in signing the Croatia international before the Italian transfer window closes on August 23.

Lovren fell down the centre-back pecking order last term and is currently fourth choice behind Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.

The former Southampton stopper has two years remaining on his Liverpool contract and is open to a departure in the next 10 days.

Lovren was left out of Liverpool's matchday squad for Friday's 4-1 victory over Norwich (opens in new tab).

Jurgen Klopp's side will take on Chelsea (opens in new tab) in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday, but Lovren is not expected to play a part.
