Tottenham Hotspur has been associated with Sergei Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio in recent weeks.
Now Fabrizio Romano – writing on CaughtOffside – has provided up-to-date information on the Serbian International.
According to La Lazio Siamo Noi, the duo Spurs Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici are ‘crazy’ to the 27-year-old.
Tottenham could make big changes in the middle of the advance this summer.
The spurs sold Dele Alli and in January they borrowed Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celsa.
Harry Winks’ future on the N17 is also uncertain, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is reportedly on Roma radar.
That makes the new midfielder for Tottenham an absolute must in the coming season.
And in Milinkovic-Savic, they would get one of the best midfielders in European football.
In addition to Tottenham, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were also associated with him.
Last year, there were also links between Liverpool and Milinkovic-Savic.
“One of the most underrated midfielders in the world”
Romano claimed that Lazio had not received any offers for Milinkovich-Savic, but stressed that he was being watched by several top clubs.
The Italian also shared his personal opinion of the player and considered him a perfect replacement for Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
Lazio did not receive any offers for Sergei Milinkovich-Savich.
“Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have been rumoring in Italy for years, but no offer has ever come from the two clubs.
“PSG boss Leonardo has been an admirer of Sergei for many years.
“Manchester United has sent its scouts again several times to follow him this year, but no negotiations are taking place yet.”
“Lazio would like at least 70-75 million euros (60 million-63.5 million pounds) for Milinkovich-Savich.
“It could be a really interesting deal, because Milinkovic is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated midfielders in the world.
“He has double-digit goals and assists in Serie A this season.” And you can see how ideal it could be to replace Paul Pogba at United, for example. ”
“One day he will compete for the Golden Ball”
Milinkovic-Savic is represented by former Chelsea and Serbian forward Mateja Kezman.
A football player who is now retired and has become an agent has always had great things about his client.
In an interview in March 2018, he spoke with Milinkovic-Savic and tipped him over as a superstar.
Kezman told Mozzart Sport: “When Sergei came to Italy, there was a comparison with Paul Pogba.
“I think Milinkovic-Savic now has some other qualities that are better than Pogba.
“He has made tremendous progress over the last six months and he has the opportunity to be the best in the world in my opinion.
“Sometimes it reminds me of Zinedin Zidan and there are certain things he does that you won’t see on TV.”
“He may be better than Arjen Robben and Frank Lampard for me and one day he will compete for the Golden Ball.”
