Liverpool will reportedly have to pay £67m if they wish to sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Despite the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum during the summer transfer window, Jurgen Klopp failed to bring in a like-for-like replacement.
However, with James Milner turning 36 years of age in January, the Merseyside giants will naturally have to consider introducing a fresh face to the squad.
According to Calciomercato, a move for Milinkovic-Savic appears unlikely with Lazio confident of extending the Serbia international’s stay at Stadio Olimpico.
Club officials feel that the 26-year-old is happy with life in Italy and will be open to signing a new deal which will last until 2025.
The report adds that Lazio will not contemplate a sale for anything less than £67m during the summer transfer window.
