As grass is green and water is wet, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is once again being linked heavily with a departure from Lazio. The Serbian has been an integral part of the Biancoceleste’s setup for many years now and it seems as though each summer, he is once again touted to leave.
According to reports from Italian newspaper the Corriere dello Sport, Milinkovic-Savic could be in line for a move to Juventus. The Bianconeri have again identified the midfielder as a valuable addition to the squad and are ready to deal with notoriously difficult Lazio president Claudio Lotito in order to get their man.
The latest reports, however, suggest that Lazio manager Maurizio Sarri is open to letting Sergej leave but is after a player in return to help plug the gaps. The player in question is Juventus starlet Nicolo Fagioli, who spent the season on loan with Cremonese with much success. The Biancocelesti see Fagioli as the ideal replacement for an ageing Lucas Leiva, whilst someone like Toma Basic is seen as ideal to fill the void left by Milinkovic-Savic if he were to leave the club.
