Blow for Juventus as Lazio close in on keeping their target on a new deal

Juventus has been handed a transfer blow as it appears Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is closing in on a new Lazio deal.

The Serbian midfielder has been one of the finest players in his position in Serie A over the last few seasons.

His performances have seen top clubs around Europe circle and Juve wants to win the race for his signature.

However, it has not been an easy pursuit, with Lazio insisting they pay a huge transfer fee and Juve does not have all the money.

The Biancoceleste has been intent on not selling him, except a big-money offer arrives because they consider him a key member of their team.

They are now close to keeping him and a report via Tuttomercatoweb reveals the midfielder will likely sign a new deal worth around 5m euros per season.

Juve FC Says

Lazio will struggle if they lose Milinkovic-Savic and that could be the reason they still want to keep him.

The midfielder also seems settled at the club and it will take a lot of effort for him to join us.

Firstly, we must agree to pay Lazio’s transfer fee, which is not little. If the midfielder continues to be expensive for our budget, then we can move on to other targets.

    Too scared to move a step higher. He will always be remembered as one of the best midfielders but never the best. He deserves to be in a top team but not with the kind of agent he’s working with

      yeah it`s pretty much too late for him. there seems to be talk about a big move every year but it never happens, and Bayern and the big teams never seem interested. If he`d moved to join Ten Hag at United, a club with a REAL positive coach and rebuild, that would have been his best move right now
