66-time capped defender interesting Liverpool holds meeting with Euro giants - report
By Harvey Byrne
Experienced centre-back Simon Kjaer has flown to Milan to hold a meeting with European giants AC and Inter, according to a report.
Turkish news outlet Fanatik have claimed that the 28-year-old Fenerbache defender has gone out to Milan to talk with the managers of the two European giants.
But, it is also detailed that Liverpool are interested in the 66-time capped Denmark international’s signature as they look to improve their weak back line.
However, the Reds may come up short with the report also claiming that Kjaer would prefer a move to Italy or France, where the player has previously played.
Kjaer has had a colourful career playing for the likes of Wolfsburg, Roma, Lille and Fenerbache since breaking through the FC Midtjylland youth system.

He has played a total of 38 times for current club Fenerbache in all competitions this season as they sit in third place in the Turkish top-flight.
It is possible that he has been viewed as a player to improve the Liverpool back line, which has come under criticism for a number of years now.
But, the Reds are sure to face competition for the signature of Kjaer if they do make a move.
Football Insider verdict:
Liverpool are in desperate need of a centre-back this summer and Kjaer could be the ideal signing. However, with the report stating that some of Europe’s biggest clubs are chasing him he won’t be coming easy. This means that the Reds must secure a place in next season’s Champions League if they are to stand a chance of purchasing the Denmark international and then they should identify suitable targets from there. Kjaer has a lot of experience of playing at the highest level and he could be the man to finally sort out the Reds’ back four.
