PSG are leading the race to sign evergreen Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinković Savić. The Serbian midfielder has racked up plenty of interest from top European clubs for the last couple of seasons. Yet a move away from Lazio has never materialized. This time, however, the transfer rumors surrounding the player are much more serious.

The midfielder, who is now in his seventh season at Stadio Olimpico, has made a name for himself as one of the team’s best players in recent memory. In 242 games across all formats, Milinkovic-Savic has provided 51 goals and 48 assists. This season in 12 League matches, the Serbian international has scored four goals while assisting another seven.

Fellow teammate Ciro Immobile has even compared the player to Manchester City star playmaker Kevin De Bruyne. 

“Trust me, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is magic. He’s on the same level as Kevin De Bruyne.”

PSG and other clubs are interested in Savic

Real Madrid and AC Milan are trailing Paris Saint-Germain in the race to acquire Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to a report by the Spanish website Fichajes. The France Champions is ready to offer up to €80 million transfer fee for the payer. However, in order to let the Serbian international go, Serie A Lazio demands €100 million.

Lazio’s President also spoke about the player’s reported interest and future with the club. Claudio Lotito, the president of Lazio, has reiterated that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will not be sold unless a club is willing to spend €120 million. Sergej’s contract runs out in 2024. It is only understandable to expect Lazio to look to offload the player to cash on him before the time runs out. However, Claudio has other plans. According to the president of the Italian team, Milinkovic-Savic will be presented with a new contract, and its value will only rise shortly.
