Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is targeted by Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham. Lazio chief is ready to consider all offers.
Serie A player Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is the latest addition to the transfer rumors. Lazio was not considering offers for the player due to his important role in the performance of the team. But the negative financial implications on the club created a chance of second thought for the club. (Daily Mail)
Lazio sporting director Igli Tare revealed that there is a possibility for every prediction regarding the player. The club is now considering a profitable deal for the player even though he has got 4 more years in his contract. Tare talked to Sky Sport Italia on the transfer chances of the player. Lazio is stuck to the price tag of a minimum of £50 million for the midfielder.
The 25 years old Serbian is playing in the central role of Lazio midfield. He joined Lazio in 2015 from Belgium, made a trademark in Stadio Olimpico. He also led the attack as an attacking midfielder in Italy. According to Transfermarkt, the present market value of the player is over £57 million.
PL clubs chasing for the Serbian
Premier League sides including United and Chelsea have asked for the player. The central midfielder role is facing drawbacks on these sides. But, the price tag is a little above from the budget of the teams. The current pandemic situations won’t negotiate with Lazio on the price range of the player.
Old Trafford is not sure about the player chase. Savic is not in the first preference of Ole in his wishlist. The hope in Pogba-Fernandes duo keeps Ole out of other expensive recruitments. The January transfer window already took the budget of the midfield department of Red Devils. But, adding back-ups for the position is considerable for United. Also, a player in the potential of Savic won’t take the role of back-up as of the current profile and playing condition.
Meanwhile, in Stamford Bridge, Frank Lampard is looking at the future of Jorginho. The midfield of Blues is incomplete without Jorginho in the middle as per the current situation. Although, Lampard is in the hope that the player will stay in West London available for service. Italian giants Juventus is the main temptation for the player.
Jose Mourinho’s Spurs are in deep trouble. They should come back to the top six positions and should ensure their capability to challenge the others in big six. Christian Eriksen is the player who is in the transfer rumors from Spurs this season. Clubs including LaLiga giants Real Madrid is chasing Eriksen for next season. Savic can replace Eriksen in midfield when the deal happens.
Lazio’s strategic price tag
Although, Savic is doing well in Lazio. 5 goals and 7 assists from 31 appearances this season was quite attractive for the midfielder. He revealed his comfortableness in Italian camp long ago. Now also he is enjoying that vibe in Lazio. The management also wants him to stay and complete his contract.
Lazio made it clear that they are not ready to negotiate on the price as it is considered as a tactical move from the Italians. None of the above-mentioned teams would sign the player for a fee of over £50 million as per the speculations. Also, the current market instability won’t allow the smooth transfer as per the reports. Savic should probably continue with Lazio until the team considers a negotiation on the price.
