Paris Saint-Germain has reportedly made an offer for SS Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Following a disappointing Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in Lisbon on Saturday, Paris Saint-German has quickly turn made a ditch into the transfer market as they plan to bolster their squad.
According to news out of Italy, the French champions have turned their sight to SS Lazio’s star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Corriere Della Sera, an Italian news outlet reports that Paris Siant-Germain have made contact with the Lazio board and have tabled an initial offer of £54 million for the midfielder
However, Paris Saint-Germain would have to table an improved offer for their man, with the Lazio president, Claudio Lotito, reportedly holding out for a higher fee.
Its believed, however, that the £54 million offer would not be enough for Lazio to release the 25-year-old, but could see negotiations begin between both parties.
After a series of failed moves over the years, Lazio has now reportedly told Milinkovic-Savic that should the right offer be tabled for him, he would be allowed to leave the Stadio Olimpico.
Milinkovic-Savic has attracted a host of top clubs in the past, especially from the Premier League, with Chelsea and Spurs once linked with the Lazio star. Manchester United was also very keen on his signature, but a deal failed to materialize.
The Serbian international has spent five seasons at the Stadio Olimpico following his switch from Belgian side Genk in 2015.
Since his move to Italy, the midfielder has risen through the ranks to become one of the most complete midfielders across Europe. His eye for goal, coupled with his balance on the ball, strength, and stamina are qualities that distinguish him from the rest.
Last season, Milinkovic-Savic was directly involved in 13 goals in 33 appearances in the famous Lazio shirt, scoring eight goals while setting up five assists in all competitions for his team-mates.
Should he complete the move to Paris Saint-Germain, he would slot nicely in heart of the French Champion’s midfield.
