Liverpool the Latest Club to Show Interest in Lazio’s Star Midfielder

Lazio’s hopes to finish in Serie A’s top-four is quickly diminishing, as they’ve endured a rough stretch in league play, losing three of their last four fixtures in the domestic competition. As a result, the Biancocelesti now sit seven points away from fourth place AS Roma.

If Simone Inzaghi’s side fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, it could result in roster changes. Over the last few transfer windows, Sergej Milinković-Savić has seen his name in various rumors. However, none have materialized to this date.

Nonetheless, with COVID-19 affecting financial revenue, and the lack of Champions League competition becoming a possibility for next season, this summer could be the one in which the 26-year-old moves on from the Biancocelesti.

According to Don Balón, Liverpool FC wants to shake up its midfield, and one player that manager Jürgen Klopp is eyeing is Milinković-Savić. As it stands, the Serbian international is under contract until 2024 with Lazio, and Transfermarkt places his transfer value at €70 million. 

Therefore, if Lazio does decide to listen on offers for Milinković-Savić, it will likely start at a figure of at least €70 million.
