Lazio Unimpressed with Bids for Their Star Midfielders

Other than the Marcos Antonio deal, the transfer market window has proceeded slowly with Lazio, especially because Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, whose departures would foot multiple additions, are not close to switching teams.

As per Radiosei, Sevilla tabled an offer for the Spaniard, but it was rejected. Director Monchi proposed €16M, but the Biancocelesti want €20M plus add-ons. They have to give 30 percent of the fee to Liverpool. They hope the Andalusians will raise their bid. Denis Suarez and Ivan Ilic would be the top options to replace him.

While Luis Alberto has drawn some attention, the high price tag set by Lazio for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has scared the suitors away. Manchester United and PSG were previously touted to be top of the queue. However, that was before they overhauled their technical leadership. Instead, Juventus have picked Paul Pogba.

Executive Igli Tare touched base with Chelsea during a recent trip to London. The Blues have multiple players that interest the capital side, but they wish to sell primarily for cash, Tuttomercatoweb relays. The ace, who could transfer for bids upward of €60M, will not force his way out. He will be present for the start of the pre-season camp.

Our Take on Lazio, Luis Alberto and Milinkovic-Savic

It would be stunning if another summer passed without a powerhouse pouncing on the Serbian, who has simply been marvelous for years. The Biancocelesti would be obviously happy to keep him, but they are nearing the danger zone since his contract runs out in 2024. Absent an extension, they would not be able to cash in as handsomely next summer. It would be way better if just one of the two left technically speaking. The Spanish maestro has a long-term deal, but his valuation makes him a more likely candidate.
