Lazio will meet with Serbian agent Mateja Kezman in a few weeks to discuss the futures of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Adam Marusic and Cukaricki’s Dimitrije Kamenovic.
As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the confirmation of coach Simone Inzaghi’s contract renewal with the club means that discussions can now begin about the squad.
The main topic of the Biancocelesti’s meeting with Kezman will be Milinkovic-Savic. The 26-year-old Serb, who is contracted to the club until 2024, is valued at around €100 million and always seems to be linked with a host of clubs in the summer transfer windows.
President Claudio Lotito is a big fan of Milinkovic-Savic, who has turned down a variety of tempting offers to keep the 26-year-old. The player himself is happy in Rome and has never pushed for a transfer.
The next focus of the meeting will be the future of Marusic. The 28-year-old Montenegrin exploded this season, becoming a key player for Inzaghi and excelling in four different roles.
His current contract expires in 2022 and he only earns €750,000 a season; The player is hoping for a higher salary of above €1.5 million. This is a little off from Lazio’s offer, but the club hopes to reach an agreement.
Finally, Lazio will finalise the purchase of Kamenovic from Serbian side Cukaricki. The 20-year-old Serb will be signed for around €2.5 million and can play as a left wing-back or left-sided centre-back. He will start out as a squad player, but could eventually explode in a similar vein to Marusic.
