Juventus Consider Offering Lazio Out of Favour Duo to Land £100m Rated Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Juventus are considering offering Lazio ​Leonardo Spinazzola and Cristian Romero in their bid to sign midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serbia international is one of the most sought after midfield players in Europe and has previously been linked with Manchester United but it’s Serie A champions Juve who have stolen a march on their rivals in recent weeks.

According to the Corriere dello Sport via ​Football Italia, I Bianconeri want to get around I Biancocelesti’s £100m asking price by including left back Spinazzola and defender Romero in the deal.

​Juventus are eager to wrap the deal up as soon as possible, as they fear former ​Milan director of sport Leonardo could target the 24-year-old straight away should he return to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Spinazzola has struggled for game time at Juve, mainly due to ​Alex Sandro’s presence as the club’s first choice left back, and only made ten ​Serie A appearances in the 2018/19 campaign. Romero has been snapped up from Genoa, although an official announcement regarding the 21-year-old’s future is yet to be made.

Blaise Matuidi recently ​dismissed speculation regarding a potential move away from Juve but there are doubts over Miralem Pjanic’s future, especially after the Bosnian publicly ​flirted with PSG back in May.

Juve are looking to strengthen this summer ahead of their defence of the Serie A title, while they will also be looking for an improved performance in the Champions League. Maurizio Sarri is expected to confirmed as the club’s new manager soon after it ​emerged he was free to leave Chelsea.
