Manchester United are pondering a summer transfer bid to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils could make a move to try and bring the 23-year-old to Old Trafford this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his midfield options at Old Trafford.
The same report says that Milinkovic-Savic is rated at around £80m by the Italian side, and the player has attracted interest from a number of other top clubs.
The story says that Milinkovic-Savic has also been courted by the likes of Chelsea FC, Real Madrid and Juventus. The Sport Review exclusively revealed last summer that Liverpool FC were also interested.
Milinkovic-Savic already knows Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic well, having partnered with him for the Serbian national team.
The 23-year-old has scored nine goals and made two assists in 24 Serie A games for Lazio so far this season.
Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window offers Jose Mourinho the chance to further bolster his squad ahead of next season.
The Red Devils spent big on bringing Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
