FC Barcelona are interested in buying Lazio’s rising star, Sergej Milinković-Savić, who is enjoying a breakout season in Serie A, according to Francesc Aguilar in Mundo Deportivo. Robert Fernández has been said to have been a fan for a while now, having seen him play live a few times.

However, the price could be too steep as Lazio are asking for a jaw-dropping 80 million euro for the 23-year-old Serbian. Apparently, all the big clubs are sniffing around for him - including Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.

Barça may, in the end, opt for completing the purchase of Arthur Melo instead of buying Sergej.
