Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Juventus are on high alert as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is set to leave Lazio this summer.
This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInterNews, who report that the 28-year-old will leave the Stadio Olimpico this summer rather than sign a new contract, and that he will cost €30-35 million amid Serie A and Premier League interest.
According to Mediaset, tomorrow evening’s clash with Cremonese is likely to be Milinkovic-Savic’s last for Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.
The Serb joined the Biancocelesti from Genk in 2015, but is set to leave after eight seasons.
Milinkovic-Savic’s current contract with Lazio runs out at the end of next June. The Biancocelesti offered the midfielder a new deal, but he is not set to sign an extension.
Accordingly, the capital club will look to cash in while they have the chance.
Lazio would have no intention of losing Milinkovic-Savic on a free transfer next summer. As such, the 28-year-old will likely be sold for a fee in the upcoming transfer window.
Given the 28-year-old’s contract situation, Mediaset report that Lazio will listen to offers of around €30-35 million.
Inter Milan Ready To Move With Segej Milnikovic-Savic Leaving Lazio
Milinkovic-Savic will have no shortage of suitors this summer.
According to Mediaset, teams in the Premier League are keen on the Serbian international’s signature.
However, there is also plenty of interest from Serie A clubs. Milinkovic-Savic has certainly proven he’s a player who can make the difference in the Italian top flight.
Mediaset report that Milan and Juventus are interested in signing the Serb, but above all Inter.
Milinkovic-Savic is a long-term target for the Nerazzurri. This is particularly the case given that coach Simone Inzaghi, who had worked with Milnikovic-Savic at Lazio for five seasons, would consider the midfielder a “dream signing.”
Meeting Lazio’s valuation for Milinkovic-Savic won’t be an easy for a club with Inter’s financial constraints.
However, the Serb’s contract situation means that a deal could be within reach. Particularly given the Nerazzurri’s unexpected cash windfall from reaching the Champions League final.
Mediaset report that the arrival of Milinkovic-Savic could be something of a reward to Inzaghi for guiding Inter to the Champions League final as well as winning the Coppa Italia again.
