Sergej Milinkovic-Savic seemed destined to be sold by Lazio this summer but things have fallen quiet in recent weeks, so what’s going on?
The 27-year-old Serbian midfielder had a great season under Maurizio Sarri in Rome, scoring 11 goals and providing 11 assists in 37 Serie A appearances. With a contract expiring in 2024, this transfer window seemed like the perfect time to cash in on Milinkovic-Savic, especially with Maurizio Sarri wanting a complete squad overhaul.
As detailed by Gianluigi Longari to The Italian Football Podcast, no concrete offers have arrived yet for Milinkovic-Savic and it’s possible that the Lazio man’s price tag might be too high to see a summer move.
Recent reports suggest that Milinkovic-Savic turned down a one-year contract renewal with Lazio and a suitor could still come forward later this window.
