Sarri’s Lazio to Court Unwanted Juventus Striker Milik

Juventus have reportedly made a definitive decision on the future of striker Arkadiusz Milik, whose loan deal at the Bianconeri is set to expire at the end of the month. However, they may still lie a twist in the Polish striker’s tale before he returns back to France with Ligue 1 outfit Olympique de Marseille.

With Milik all but set to leave Juventus, as per latest developments cited by La Repubblica (via Tuttomercatoweb), Serie A rivals Lazio are in the race to sign him as Ciro Immobile’s deputy in attack. Maurzio Sarri, in cohorts with president Claudio Lotito, is eager to reinforce his outfit ahead of a crucial season which will see them star in the Champions League.

According to Il Messaggero (via Tuttomercatoweb), Sarri sees Milik as his dream signing in the forward line.

The 29-year-old Pole center-forward will not be redeemed by Juventus, even though the club have the option to buy him from Marseille. His deal in the south of France expires in the summer of 2025, and Lazio would need to shell at least €10M to sign the former Napoli hitman.

Milik rose to fame under Sarri at the Partenopei, where he scored 48 goals in 122 appearances.
