Lazio target Danish midfielder as a replacement for Man Utd and Juventus target Milinkovic-Savic

The upcoming summer transfer window could see a massive overhaul at Lazio, with a plethora of players intending to leave the Italian capital.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lazio are open to selling Luiz Felipe, Thomas Strakosha, Lucas Leiva, Patric, and Sergej Milinković-Savić this summer.

The report believes that president Claudio Lotito is keen on accumulating some substantial funds from their sales of the players. Sergej Milinković-Savić remains the hottest prospect on the list, and Lotito wants to shift the Serbian at the highest price possible.

Per the story, despite potentially selling Milinković-Savić at a high price, Lazio will seek to make economical signings to replace the midfielder this summer.

As a result, they have been keeping an eye on Royale Union Saint-Gilloise’s Casper Nielsen for some time now. Currently playing in the top tier of Belgian football, Nielsen has enjoyed a decent run of form, having amassed seven goals and six assists across all competitions in the 2021/22 campaign.

Quite versatile, the 28-year-old Dane can play as a central midfielder, a defensive midfielder, and also in an attacking midfield position.

Belgian newspaper HLN reports that an offer of around €6million could be enough to lure Nielsen away from Belgium. The player’s current contract at Royale Union Saint-Gilloise runs until June 2024, with several English and French clubs reportedly keeping tabs on the situation.
