REVEALED: Roma move for Liverpool defender Lovren collapsed over one demand

Roma's move for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has fallen through over a signing-on bonus.

TMW says Roma and Liverpool had struck terms over a deal for Lovren, who had also settled on a contract with the Giallorosso.

Yesterday, Liverpool had agreed a €3m loan fee with Roma with a permanent option worth €12m, which would be triggered by 20 appearances.

Lovren also agreed a €3m-a-year contract for four seasons.

However, the deal has now collapsed - for the moment - after Lovren's demands of a €1m signing-on bonus was turned down by Roma.
