Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp is negotiating the move of Dejan Lovren with Roma. Both parties seem to share the same interest and are not ready to let go of their stand.
What is contradicting is that previous reports indicated that Roma and its business partner had agreed on the move. If that’s the case, why is the move taking this long?
Apparently, Liverpool and Roma are not in agreement with the details of the contract as reported by Corriere Dello Sport.
On his side, Jurgen Klopp is ready to part with Lovren at a price of £26m while Roma maintains that they should sign Lovren on loan and that too, temporarily.
Having suffered injuries last season, Lovren dropped in the pecking order falling behind Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Van Djik. These being aspects that Roma are taking into consideration and thus want to have the player for one season only.
The Reds are ready to sign the contract on loan on condition that it is a permanent transfer. Since Lovren’s market value has reduced and has only one year before his contract with the Champions League holders, Klopp maintains that the transfer should be for good.
With only 18 appearances last season, Lovren though eager to play, has to play even less this season.
Factors that also support Roma’s temporary sign up for the player. It is also reported that Roma has eyes on Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi, Torino’s Nicolas Nkoulou, and Juventus’ Daniele Rugani.
The European transfer deadline is drawing near with only one day to go meaning that the negotiations must be completed. Lovren’s fate will be determined by then so let’s wait and see.
