Lazio snap up Pavlovic

Lazio have reportedly snapped up 18-year-old Partizan Belgrade defender Strahinja Pavlovic for €5.5m.

Multiple sources including La Gazzetta dello Sport claim the deal is done and Pavlovic will be allowed to remain in Belgrade for the rest of this season on loan.

A five-year contract is ready to be signed and the tall Serbia Under-19 international was only promoted to the senior Partizan squad in January.

Juventus, Manchester City and others had already scouted Pavlovic, but Lazio seem to have convinced the player.

He will come to Rome in June 2020, when he’ll have just turned 19.
