Italian giants AC Milan are reportedly set to revisit their previous interest in Liverpool's Croatian centre-half Dejan Lovren.

According to a report from Tutto Mercato Web, AC Milan have reignited their previous interest in Liverpool's Dejan Lovren over a move to the San Siro this summer.

Calcio Mercato reported at the start of this month that Milan were unwilling to meet Liverpool's demands for Lovren and were considering their options. However, the new report claims that the Croatian's agent is in Milan to hold talks with the Rossoneri representatives to sort out his client's future. 

 

Lovren has dropped down the pecking order at Anfield with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez all ahead of him in the pecking order. The Croatian played just 18 times for Liverpool last season in all competitions, and his chances of regular game time next term are slim considering the options Jurgen Klopp has. 

Milan are desperately short of centre-halves with Mattia Caldara ruled out of action until December. Skipper Alessio Romagnoli and Argentine Mateo Musacchio are the club's only other recognized centre-backs and, with the new season fast approaching, reinforcements are vital.

Lovren, despite his occasional poor showing for the Reds, could turn out to be a brilliant signing for Rossoneri this summer where the pace of the Italian game would suit him a lot more than that of the Premier League.

Liverpool can expect a decent sum for the Croatian if a deal can be struck with Milan and Klopp could use it for additions elsewhere.
