AC Milan is set for a series of changes to the club’s operational structure, beginning with Frederica Massara to be named the sporting director, Paolo Maldini revealed.

Gennaro Gattuso is also expected to be replaced by Sampdoria boss, Marco Giampaolo by next week. As per player transfers are concerned, the Rossoneri have set their sights on Liverpool defender, Dejan Lovren.

The Croatian has fallen down the pecking order this past season after the return of Joel Matip from injury. Lovren was heavily involved in Liverpool’s first run to the Champions League final in 2018 but he hardly featured for the Reds this past term, making only 18 appearances.

Of course, an injury midway into the season ate into his minutes for the first-team but he never was going to be picked over a healthy Joe Gomez or Matip under Jurgen Klopp.

The 29-year-old still has two seasons left in his contract and this could the best time for Liverpool to cash in on him. Klopp is looking to turn the Merseyside outfit into a defensive juggernaut, by bringing in Matthijs de Ligt.

The 19-year-old Ajax star is sought after by many and it will take a significant financial investment to get him. Clearing up a bit of space in the backline will not hurt but only increase the chances of signing the wonderkid.
