Lazio want to sign Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey to replace Manchester United-bound Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media website Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that Serie A club have identified Ramsey as a potential replacement for Milinkovic-Savic.

The same article states that the Serbia international is attracting interest from Manchester United, Serie A champions Juventus and Champions League winners Real Madrid.

According to the same story, Lazio are confident that Ramsey can be lured to the Italian capital after Arsenal missed out on a top-four finish this season.

Ramsey has little over 12 months left to run on his current deal with Arsenal to raise questions about his future at the north London side.

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is thought to bee keen to keep the Wales international ahead of the Spanish head coach’s first season in charge of the north London outfit.

The Gunners finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last season after Arsenal finished outside the Champions League spots for the second successive season.

Arsenal lost 2-1 to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals to miss out on a spot in the final.
