Lazio have opened talks with Juventus striker Arkadiusz Milik as they sound out a possible summer move.
The Biancocelesti are on the hunt for a new striker to compliment captain Ciro Immobile up front, needing to fill the void left behind following the relatively recent departures of Felipe Caicedo and Vedat Muriqi.
Milik has shown some positive signs whilst on loan with Juventus this season, netting seven goals in 26 Serie A appearances under Massimiliano Allegri.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Maurizio Sarri knows Milik well and wants to bring him to Lazio, so contacts have been initiated with the Polish striker and his entourage to discuss a possible move in the summer.
Juventus have until 10th June to decide whether or not to sign him from Olympique Marseille for around €7 million plus add-ons, but current indications suggest that he’ll be sent back to south France.
The only major issue is Milik’s salary; the 29-year-old currently earns around €3.5 million net per season and is also wanted by unnamed clubs in the Bundesliga and Premier League.
