Liverpool keen on Lazio star amid midfield uncertainty
Liverpool are said to be interested in Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as they look to rebuild their midfield department with many red stars leaving.
James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita will all have their contracts expire in the summer, and no extensions have been reached for any of them. Milinkovc-Savic is reportedly a top target for Liverpool this summer.
According to CMW, the midfielder who is out of contract in 2024 might be offered for roughly £44 million.
The 28-year-old Serbian has previously been connected to Arsenal, but those rumors have diminished recently, leaving Liverpool in a favorable position to pursue the player at will.
The man that Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri has called “one of the best midfielders in the world” has six goals and eight assists in 35 matches from central midfield for I Biancocelesti this season, a tally that Liverpool could certainly do with someone from their current midfield crop and for the price quoted, it could be very hard to turn down a player of his quality.
With Lazio unlikely to want to lose their main man for free next summer, they could well have their hand forced this summer as some big teams will most certainly register interest in the 39-time capped player.
