Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has emerged as the leading candidate to bolster the Juventus midfield in the summer.
The Bianconeri have secured Champions League participation for the 2022/23 campaign, and the Serbian international has been having another stellar season with the Biancocelesti, scoring 10 goals and supplying 11 assists in 35 Serie A matches.
Tuttosport reports that Juventus sports coordinator Federico Cherubini has made Milinkovic-Savic the club’s priority in midfield, although they might find Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s evaluation of the Serb a bit excessive.
This has prompted Cherubini to make a list of alternatives in case La Vecchia Signora cannot lure Milinkovic-Savic to Turin.
Lille midfielder Renato Sanches is another option but they face competition from Roma and AC Milan, Leandro Paredes from Paris Saint-Germain remains a player of interest, and so does Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.
Sassuolo starlet Davide Frattesi is also under consideration but Inter are also eager to sign the 22-year-old.
Juventus are also hoping to sell midfielders Arthur and Adrien Rabiot to generate funds for the potential acquisition of Milinkovic-Savic as well as other midfielders.
