Lazio have been hoping to cash in on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer but a lack of offers may force them to change their plans.
The 28-year-old Serbian midfielder is ready to leave the Italian capital at the end of this season, wanting to make the jump to a top European side at the peak of his career.
It’s been clear for months now that Milinkovic-Savic is not willing to sign a new contract with Lazio and his agent Mateja Kezman has been touring Europe trying to collect offers for the star midfielder, who’ll be a free agent in 13 months’ time.
As detailed by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Lazio have been planning ahead for their summer transfer window on the assumption that they’d sell Milinkovic-Savic for around €40 million, but things may not be so simple.
As of now, no concrete offers have arrived for the Serbian midfielder, with clubs keenly aware that he’d be able to sign a pre-contract for free in just seven months’ time.
Due to this, Lazio are now seemingly at risk of losing Milinkovic-Savic on a free transfer next year after his contract expires with the club.
