Liverpool determined to sign 26-year-old Serie A midfielder

The Merseyside giants could look at the possibility of signing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as a long-term midfield reinforcement. Liverpool might look at signing Serbia international from Lazio as an alternative if they fail in pursuit of their main targets.

Since the summer transfer window, the Reds have been chasing a reliable midfielder but have nowhere near concluded a deal. They are currently sweating over the renewal of talisman Salah, who has 18 months left on his deal. But at the same time, the Reds must bolster their options in other departments.

They have a few primary options in mind, including Bellingham and Phillips as far as English midfielders are concerned. At the same time, other targets from overseas clubs are also on the Reds’ radar. Recently, they have been linked with a host of options, although most could be measured as media speculation at best.

The links with Camavinga of Real Madrid could be taken with a pinch of salt, and signing the likes of Bellingham and Phillips might be more realistic. The suggestion is based upon the duration of Sergej’s deal, which expires in 2024, which could supposedly give the Reds the edge in negotiations.

Milinkovic-Savic has long been linked with a move to the PL, and if Liverpool do make an approach, the 26-year-old midfielder might jump leagues this time. There is plenty of interest in the Serbian midfielder, with Juventus, Real Madrid and Man United among those keen on the 26-year-old midfielder.
