Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren interesting Roma

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is interesting Roma.

Corriere dello Sport says Lovren is being considered as an alternative to on-loan Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.

The Croatian international has made just nine appearances for Liverpool this season and is now fourth choice in the pecking order of centre-backs at Anfield.

At 30, Lovren is aware he may only have one big contract left in his career, and is desperate for first-team football.

He has been linked with a switch to Roma in the past, and would welcome the chance to revive his career in a similar fashion to how Smalling has turned his around.

Former Roma sporting director Franco Baldini is also said to have recommended Lovren to club chiefs.
