AC Milan will look to make a bid for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren after appointing a new manager, according to reports.

Liverpool are understood to be only interested in ‘minor tweaks’ to their squad this summer with a few squad players coming and going.

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.

Sky in Italy claims that AC Milan are interested in the Croatia international despite not yet making a formal offer.

They will instead wait until Sampdoria boss Marco Giampaolo is in place as their replacement for Gennaro Gattuso – who left his role as head coach recently – to act on their interest.

And Paul Joyce in The Times claims it would take offers of at least £25million to tempt Liverpool into selling Lovren.

Joyce adds: ‘No contact from AC Milan, but their prospective new sporting director Ricky Massara rates Lovren highly.’
