Sergej Milinković-Savić could leave Lazio this month, with the club’s president reportedly tired of trying to extend his contract, amid Juventus’ strong interest.

Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito does not want to release Milinković-Savić as he has said many times, but could be forced to release him as it’s getting complicated to extend his contract.

According to the reports from Il Messaggero, Claudio Lotito would be tired of the push and pull with the player regarding the contract renewal and for this reason he would even be prepared to let him leave as early as this January.

The 27-year-old has a contract until 2024 with Lazio, which means if he doesn’t renew he could be available for free next year.

Lazio wanted to extend Milinković-Savić’s contract, reportedly offering him a salary of 5 million euros per year, but Milinković-Savić refused.

Juventus are closely monitoring his situation as Lazio could accept a loan for €10m with an obligation to buy at the end of this season set at €40m this January. Arsenal are also interested in the midfielder.

Furthermore, there’s friction between Milinković-Savić and Sarri in recent weeks, as the Lazio coach doesn’t seem happy with the midfielder’s attitude and performances, to such an extent that he’d give his approval for a transfer in the winter market.

Milinkovic-Savic has been involved in 10 goals in 16 league games this season, with three goals and seven assists.
