The 28-year-old Serbian star is hoping to make the jump to a top side this summer, seemingly ruling out the idea of penning a new deal in Rome, but things have been quiet in the early stages of this transfer window.
Lazio are willing to cash in on Milinkovic-Savic this summer but do not want to give any discounts, so are holding firm with their €40 million price tag.
Gianluca Di Marzio details how Juventus had been in contact with Lazio regarding a deal for Milinkovic-Savic before they tied down Adrien Rabiot to a new contract, but they are now focused on other targets.
Inter also made an approach in recent weeks before closing out the deal for Davide Frattesi, but they have also moved their focus elsewhere.
The main problem for both clubs is Milinkovic-Savic’s €40 million price tag. Both tried to offer players in exchange to lower the costs of a deal, but Claudio Lotito made it clear that he’s only willing to accept cash offers.
Some clubs in Saudi Arabia are also interested in picking up the Serbian star, but he is not keen on the idea of leaving Europe at this stage of his career.
