Chelsea and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, but their latest offers are not high enough for Lazio.

The Serbia international is one of the hottest commodities in Serie A after contributing to 22 goals in 47 appearances in 2021-22.

According to Il Messaggero newspaper, Chelsea and Newcastle United have already made offers for the 27-year-old, but their €55m bids are still not enough for Claudio Lotito.

Lazio wanted more than €100m for Milinkovic-Savic before the pandemic, but the Biancocelesti may agree to sell him for €70-80m in the summer. No club has yet offered as much, so Milinkovic-Savic will likely begin the pre-season with his current club.

His contract at the Stadio Olimpico runs out in June 2024. Milinkovic-Savic joined Lazio from KRC Genk in 2015 and has scored 48 goals in Serie A in 231 appearances. He made his senior Serbia debut in November 2017 and has gone on to score six goals in 34 games with his national team.
