Petkovic wants Krasic at Lazio

New Lazio Coach Vladimir Petkovic is reportedly interested in bringing Juventus’ forgotten winger Milos Krasic to the capital.

After a good impression in 2010-11, Krasic struggled in his second season in Turin under Coach Antonio Conte and is set to leave the Bianconeri this summer having only played 20 minutes for them since mid-October 2011.

Lazio were reportedly on the verge of bringing the Serbian star to the Olimpico in January on a loan deal, only for the player’s agent to indicate that Krasic wasn’t interested.

Despite a change in Coach since then, the Aquile are reportedly trying to revive hopes of a deal this summer, with new boss Petkovic pushing for the move, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

The winger is rated at  €6.5m, which is €8.5m less than Juve paid for him two years ago, whilst his contract expires in 2014.

Krasic has previously also been linked with Fenerbahce, Sevilla, Zenit St Petersburg, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Marseille.
