Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren & AS Roma

On Tuesday, the likes of Times reporter Paul Joyce revealed that Dejan Lovren could be about to leave Liverpool to join AS Roma.

Lovren, 30, is under contract at Anfield until 2021.

However, the Croatian international appears to have dropped down the Liverpool pecking order.

With his chances of first-team action narrowing, Roma have been linked with a 15 million pound deal to sign Lovren.

On Wednesday, Tuttosport push the Lovren to Roma story.

Tuttosport also claim that Juventus centre-half Daniele Rugani is unlikely to join Roma, as the Italian could switch to Monaco for 30 million euros.

It’s also noted that Roma manager Paulo Fonseca “prefers” Lovren to Rugani.

Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi may also sign for Roma

Last weekend at Old Trafford, Chelsea were hammered 4-0 by Man United.

Frank Lampard started the match with Tammy Abraham in attack, while Olivier Giroud came off the bench in the second-half.

Belgian international forward Michy Batshuayi, meanwhile, was omitted from the Chelsea squad.

After recent loan spells at Valencia, Borussia Dortmund and Crystal Palace, does Batshuayi still have a future at Chelsea?

Perhaps not, as Gianluca Di Marzio has linked Batshuayi with a possible transfer to Roma.

When does the Serie A transfer window close?

The transfer market in the Italian top-flight shuts on Friday, August 23rd.

The new Serie A season starts the following day.
