Roma are in negotiations to sign Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren on loan with a possible obligation to buy.
Roma have since abandoned their pursuit of Juventus’ Daniele Rugani to focus on Lovren.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, talks are ongoing over a €2-3m season-long loan, which includes an option to buy for €15-16m
Schira adds that option would automatically become permanent if appearance and goal objectives are met.
The Croat looks like leaving Liverpool this month after falling down their centre-back pecking order.
