Napoli have collected info about Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. He has yet to receive offers that come close to the valuation set by Lazio. The midfielder is reportedly determined to leave and has his heart set on joining Juventus.
Per Corriere dello Sport, president Claudio Lotito continues to ask for €40M even though the contract of the star is up in a year. He hopes to come to terms at least on a short-term extension to avoid losing him on a free. However, the player has yet to provide an opening on the matter.
If Milinkovic-Savic signed off on transferring to Napoli, the two teams could concoct a large deal involving Piotr Zielinski and Matteo Politano. The Pole is in the same situation and is a favorite of coach Maurizio Sarri.
Instead, the winger is one of the fallbacks considering the difficulties of acquiring Domenico Berardi. As always, Sassuolo have established a very high price tag.
Our Take on Milinkovic-Savic and Napoli
Such a trade would actually benefit both sides, who would get out of two hairy situations without a loss. Plus, the Biancocelesti would address two positions of need with sound options. On the other hand, this type of deal is very rare in football, which isn’t the NBA. Moreover, the Partenopei generally refrain from signing veterans with sizeable wages.
