Lazio president Claudio Lotito has denied the reports claiming that he has an agreement with Sergej Milinković-Savić and his agent Mateja Kezman on selling the player in the January transfer window if a “top-class offer” arrives for the midfielder.
Speaking to Il Messaggero (via TuttoMercatoWeb), Lotito rejected the reports of having that agreement and asserted that he would now ask €120 million for Milinković-Savić’s services. The club president said:
“I have no agreement with Kezman to sell him to Juve or anyone else in the winter. On the contrary, he is now worth €120 million, no longer €100 million. The price goes up every month.”
Juventus are reportedly considering making an ambitious bid to lure the Serbian away from the Rome-based club in the upcoming January transfer window. Milinković-Savić, 27, has a contract at Lazio until June 2024.
Meanwhile, the midfielder seems pleased with the Serie A side, having started the season in an excellent manner. From nine league starts, he has already amassed three non-penalty goals and seven assists this season.
