Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly serious about their interest in Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as Claudio Lotito ‘won’t stand in his way’.
According to Canal+, agent Mateja Kezman will meet PSG sporting director Leonardo this week as the Brazilian is eager to mark his return from Milan with a statement signing.
However, there is some distance between Lazio’s asking price - in the region of €100m - and the €75m plus €5m in bonuses offered by the French giants.
When asked about the Serb’s future, Lotito told Gazzetta dello Sport: “At Lazio we only keep those who want to stay.
“If the player expresses the intention to try a new challenge, we won’t stand in their way.
“Negotiations aren’t carried out in newspapers. I’ll just put out there that he was considered the best midfielder in Serie A last season.”
Juventus have also shown an interest in Milinkovic-Savic but appear to be prioritising a deal to bring back Mancheser United’s Paul Pogba.
