PSG have reportedly joined the growing list of sides interested in signing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with Manchester United and Tottenham also chasing the Serbian international.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport via GIFN, Mauricio Pochettino is interested in signing the 27-year-old if PSG end up missing out on Paul Pogba, who is set to leave United at the end of his contract this summer.
Milinkovic-Savic has been one of the best midfielders in Europe in recent seasons, but with Lazio cash-strapped and looking to increase funds, the Tottenham target will be allowed to leave Rome in the transfer window.
With a price tag of £70m as reported by CalcioMercato, Milinkovic-Savic would be one of the most expensive signings of the summer should Lazio allow the world-class midfielder to leave, which could be possible with PSG now interested.
The French giants are set for a huge summer rebuild after another early elimination from the UEFA Champions League this season, with Milinkovic-Savic a potential midfield saviour for PSG if the club miss out on Pogba.
Indeed, Milinkovic-Savic has the quality to slot into any midfield in world football, and Tottenham and United, PSG’s interest in the Serbian is a major problem if either Premier League side are to sign the Serie A star.
PSG should consider themselves favourites to sign Milinkovic-Savic
Milinkovic-Savic leaving Lazio has felt like a transfer that has been in the making for years, and for PSG, they should consider themselves the favourites to land the midfielder over the likes of Tottenham and United.
With Champions League football guaranteed at Paris and a key role in a star-studded squad on the table, Milinkovic-Savic could also favour a move to PSG, even though the Premier League would be an ideal league for the midfielder’s style.
