The report states that Roma will be looking to complete “low cost” deals this summer, as they are struggling financially.
The report states that the relationship between Roma and Liverpool could help the Serie A side sign the Croatia international for a small fee.
The report even states that Lovren “could be bought with €5 million”.
The Reds signed Mohamed Salah and Alisson from Roma, which is why the report states that there is a relationship between the two clubs.
If Roma do agree a deal with Liverpool, Lovren will be offered a contract worth €3 million per year.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Lovren’s current market value is €16 million, which means that the club would be losing money if they sold the defender for €5 million.
But, Lovren’s contract expires come July next year. Lovren could ultimately depart Anfield on a free transfer in 2021.
Regardless of that being the case, I would not be selling Lovren for €5 million this summer. He gives the Reds another number on the bench.
If he were to depart on a free transfer come the end of next season, then so be it. I believe the Reds would be better off having an extra number on the bench instead of accepting a small transfer fee of €5 million. Five million is not a lot of money in football today.
Lovren has played 184 matches for Liverpool. That is experience that is hard to replace. If a senior centre-back got injured, it would be handy to have Lovren around.
