Manchester United are prepared to pay a club-record £95m to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio next year, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Express is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to shell out a huge transfer fee to land the Serbian international as he looks to add to his attacking options at Old Trafford.

Milinkovic-Savic, 22, was linked with a move to the Premier League last summer and The Sport Review exclusively revealed that Liverpool FC were keeping tabs on him back in June.

Now, though, the latest reports suggest that Manchester United are leading the race for his signature as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

The same report claims that Manchester United have been scouting Milinkovic-Savic on a number of occasions this season.

The story also suggests that Lazio president Claudio Lotito has placed a £100m price-tag on Milinkovic-Savic – and Manchester United are prepared to bid close to that asking price.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window approaches.

The Red Devils ended up signing three players in the summer, after tying up deals for Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.
