Liverpool need Lazio halfback!

According to Calciomercato, Liverpool are ready to work on the transfer of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in the coming summer window! The potential transfer fee will be up to 50 million euros.

Milinkovic-Savic has been defending the colors of the Eagles since the 2015/16 season, and during this time he has made over 300 appearances for the club in Serie A, Coppa Italia and on the continental arena. At the club, he is responsible for creating scoring chances for, for example, Ciro Immobile, and 45 assists in about eight years of performances is a clear confirmation of this. Sergej was repeatedly of interest to more status teams than Lazio, but the principal boss of the Romans, Claudio Lotito, constantly managed to keep the 28-year-old Serb at Stadio Olimpico.

At one time, he even put the price of 100 million euros for the midfielder, which immediately scared off his colleagues in Serie A, and for a long time in the Premier League they did not agree to pay so much for a quality player, but definitely not an extra class. However, Milinkovic-Savic will probably go to another club for 50 million, because his contract with Lazio expires in the summer of 2024. We don’t think that the Serbian will extend the employment agreement again, because he is already 28 years old – it’s time to try his hand at a league more interesting than Serie A.

In such scenarios, interest in Milinkovic-Savic from Liverpool looks absolutely normal. The Reds are now in serious trouble in the midfield, where the Fabinho-Henderson-Thiago trio was in full swing just a year ago. This year they have either become worse or are frequently injured, leaving Klopp's counter-pressing unused and Liverpool only sixth in the Premier League with bleak prospects of finishing in the Champions League zone.

At first, there was talk of buying Jude Bellingham by the Merseysiders, but he is too expensive, and offers from Manchester City and Real Madrid will certainly turn out to be more tempting for the talent. Therefore, Liverpool are looking for a less status, but at the same time an intelligent performer for a problematic position. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will suit Klopp in terms of creativity. The Serbian is a great passer and will help supply spectacular passes to the Reds' front line, where Salah, Gakpo, Nunez or Jota are just waiting for the right moment to score a goal. And Sergej's high growth is a panacea for riding, because there are too few players in the attacking link of Liverpool who feel comfortable in the air.

As for us, the protracted epic with the transfer of Milinkovic-Savic will end this summer, because otherwise the Serb will not bring Lazio a dime. The 28-year-old is likely to be picked up by Liverpool in order to improve their central axis and once again impose a fight for the Premier League title.
