Lazio have set quite a high asking price for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic which AC Milan hope to bring down by including a player going the other way, a report claims.
According to Claudio Raimondi in his article for SportMediaset, Milan are aiming for an ambitious transfer window and that is why they will at least try for Milinkovic-Savic as a potential reinforcement for the midfield.
Although he still has only one year on his contract, Lazio continue to value him at €35m, but the Rossoneri would be willing to include a counterpart in the negotiation such as Ante Rebic to bring the cash sum required down.
However, the source also mentioned that the amount competition could raise his price and thus make him disappear from Milan’s radar.
In addition, Lazio president Claudio Lotito tends to only work in cash which means it is almost impossible to insert a player in the deal and reach an agreement.
