On June 11th, Il Messaggero reported Sergej Milinković-Savić’s agent Mateja Kezman could bring Lazio chairman Claudio Lotito a ‘monstrous offer from Liverpool’.
These claims were out of the blue and without any context or background. Since then, there hasn’t been any concrete reports discussing the Reds’ interest in the midfielder.
Calciomercato have now come up with a report explaining how the 26-year-old and Luis Alberto will have leading roles under Maurizio Sarri next season.
It’s claimed the duo, who are ‘almost non-transferable,’ are liked by several clubs and the Serie A side would only consider their sales if there’s a ‘monstrous offer’.
With regards to the Serbia international, the report states there were ‘some polls’. His dream is to play for Real Madrid, but there has been no approach from Los Blancos.
Jürgen Klopp’s side get a mention and it’s stated that from Liverpool, ‘there have been some calls’, but the Merseyside club would want to offer less [rumours speak a figure of €70-80m].
This would suggest Liverpool are not willing to make a ‘monstrous offer’ for Milinković-Savić, and as things stand, there has been no approach from the English club to sign the player.
