Lazio linked with Milevsky

Reports in Italy are linking Lazio with a move for Dynamo Kiev's nimble striker Artem Milevsky.

The Aquile are keen to underline their ambition this summer with another big name signing.

Milevsky is highly regarded for his technical ability and would upgrade Lazio's ailing attack.

"Artem is actually among the best strikers in the Europa League," said his agent Aston Astajev.

"He has been contacted by Newcastle and Liverpool, but the player turned down these clubs because he dreams of Spain and Italy.

"Three years ago Milan want to bring Milevsky to Milan, but the owner of Dynamo said 'no'."

Asked about Lazio, Astajev said: "For now, I haven't spoken to him about them personally, even if I know through intermediaries that they are interested in the player."

It's thought that Milevsky would cost around €12m and ask for a contract worth €2m a season.
