According to Lazio news outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi, if Adam Marušić leaves the Biancocelesti this summer, Mërgim Vojvoda could be signed as his replacement.

Over the course of March and April 2020, several reports have been published that confirm Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in the 27-year-old Montenegrin international. This is the outcome of Thomas Meunier’s contract with the Ligue 1 giants expiring in the summer of 2020; as a contract renewal is not on the table, the club needs a successor for the right flank, and Sporting Director Leonardo has decided that the Marušić is a potential option.

Les Parisiens are reportedly weighing up an offer of €15-25 million, and if this is accurate, Claudio Lotito is likely to accept. This is because he was purchased from KV Oostende in 2016 for just €5.5 million, and therefore, he would secure more than an adequate profit on him. While nothing is certain yet, Igli Tare has initiated his search, closely monitoring targets that could fill the player’s shoes if he is indeed to depart; one of these profiles is Standard Liège’s Vojvoda.

Born in Germany but currently playing for the Kosovo national team, the 25-year-old has been targeted by Tare as he has similar characteristics to Marušić (in regards to technical ability, pace, endurance, and physical prowess) and because he has impressed this season, playing in 30 matches in all competitions.

While only valued at €5 million, several clubs in Serie A, the Bundesliga, and Ligue 1 are interested in his services, which is likely to drive this price up. However, Tare is very familiar and attentive to the Belgian market, which may assist Lazio in securing the player; he has acquired Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Jordan Lukaku, and Marušić from the league in recent years.
