Lazio are linked with a move for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren.
Other than Lazio, Italian clubs in Napoli and AC Milan have also confirmed interest in the 29-year-old who is valued at 10-12 million Euros by the Anfield club.
The Reds centre-back managed only 18 appearances across all competitions starting a mere 13 games.
Having seen his game time diminished under Jurgen Klopp drastically, he is expected to be one of the likely departures from Anfield this summer.
The Croatian international Lovren was the face of Liverpool’s defence until Virgil Van Dijk appeared at Anfield last year.
He lost his place to a young Gomez who impressed everyone with his performances and became a fan favourite in no time.
Lovren, however, did make a come-back but was left on the bench severally and then suffered another injury.
The resurgence of Matip did not help either as Lovren is now considered surplus to requirements at Anfield.
Taking everything into account, letting Lovren go sounds like a good choice from both an economic and a development perspective for the future of Liverpool.
