Lazio have lowered the asking price for Inter Milan and Juventus target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and will accept €30 million plus add-ons.
This according to SportItalia transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla, who reported in a tweet that the Biancocelesti won’t necessarily hold out for the full €40 million as they aim to cash in on the 28-year-old Serbian international this summer transfer window.
With teams in Serie A gearing up for the official opening of the summer transfer window on July 1, Milinkovic-Savic is a hot name.
Lazio are ready to sell the Serbian international. Given that his contract expires at the end of next June, this summer represents their last opportunity to cash in.
The Biancocelesti’s asking price for Milinkovic-Savic has generally been reported to be around €40 million.
However, Pedulla reports, that is not necessarily the case.
Lazio Lower Asking Price For Inter & Juventus Target Milinkovic-Savic
As the Biancocelesti prepare for a likely sale of Milinkovic-Savic, teams in Serie A look to be keen.
According to Pedulla, Juventus are keen on the 28-year-old. He also reports that the player is ready to accept a move to the Bianconeri.
In the meantime, Pedulla also reports that Inter are interested in Milinkovic-Savic, at the behest of coach Simone Inzaghi. The coach worked with the Serb for more than five years whilst in charge of Lazio.
However, Pedulla notes, Inter’s priority is to go after Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi.
Accordingly, Milinkovic-Savic is not currently their top priority target in midfield.
Teams in Serie A are not the only potential suitors for Milinkovic-Savic, however.
In any event, interested clubs will know what it will take to sign Milinkovic-Savic. Lazio will not demand the full €40 million that has been suggested, Pedulla reports.
However, they still want an offer that gets close to that including add-ons.
#Lotito non chiede più 40 più #MilinkovicSavic ma 30 più bonus. Non ci sono margini per il rinnovo. SMS disposto al sì #Juve anche senza la #Champions. L’#Inter – come spiegato giorni fa – apprezza molto SMS tramite#Inzaghi, ma ora è concentrata su #Frattesi
