Tottenham join Man Utd and Chelsea in transfer race for Lazio’s £80m-rated midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – The Sun

TOTTENHAM have joined Manchester United and Chelsea in the transfer race for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The 25-year-old is under contract until 2024, with the Serie A club valuing him at £80million.

The Serbian midfielder international has caught the eye with five goals and seven assists in 30 games as he and his team-mates mounted a surprise title challenge prior the campaign being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Calciomercato claim Lazio could come under big pressure to hold onto their prized-asset with a queue of clubs looking to snap him up.

And Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side are the latest name to join his list of admirers.

We reported earlier this week that Lazio have admitted the future of Milinkovic-Savic is in his own hands despite previously stating he was not for sale.

But now, Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has revealed if the player wants to leave the club it "shouldn't be a problem" but it would have to be decided at the end of the season.

Tare told Sky Sport Italia: "The player's desire is crucial.

"Generally speaking, if a player thinks that their time is up and wants to go somewhere else, it shouldn't be a problem.

"Eras come to an end. The fact he stayed in Rome for five years is because he has strong links with the city and club.

"When there was some temptation, a bit on our part, a bit on his, we never went all the way.

"However, things must be assessed at the end of the season."
