Lazio star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has made clear that he’d be happy to join Inter Milan this summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri are in contact with the Serbian international’s agent, and have received the go-ahead on a potential summer transfer.
Inter have marked out Biancocelesti star Milinkovic-Savic as a major target for this summer.
The 28-year-old is one of the main names on the Nerazzurri’s list of midfield reinforcements.
Inter coach Simone Inzaghi wants a reunion with the former Genk midfielder, whom he coached for more than five seasons at Lazio.
To this ends, the Corriere della Sera report, the Nerazzurri are already in contact with the player’s agent. Milinkovic-Savic is represented by former PSV, Chelsea, and Atletico Madrid striker Mateja Kezman.
The Corriere della Sera report that the Nerazzurri have already begun talks with Kezman. They have established their interst.
And, from Kezman’s end, the agent has told Inter that Milinkovic-Savic would welcome a move this summer.
Inter Milan Must Agree Deal With Lazio For Sergej Milinkovic-Savic
Now it will be up to Inter to try and work out a deal with Lazio to sign Milinkovic-Savic.
The Biancocelesti have been resistant to selling the Serb for anything less than a massive money offer in previous transfer windows. For this reason, he has always stayed put at the Stadio Olimpico despite no shortage of transfer interest.
However, this time around the situation is different.
Milinkovic-Savic’s current contract runs out at the end of next June.
The player has no intention of extending his deal. Therefore, Lazio are ready to cash in on the 28-year-old whilst they have the chance, rather than losing him for free next summer.
The Corriere della Sera report that the Biancocelesti would accept an offer of around €30 million for Milinkovic-Savic.
It will be up to Inter to try and push to get a deal done. They could do so whilst also in talks with Lazio to sign defender Francesco Acerbi permanently.
