Manchester City are reportedly tipped to make a signing of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are also interested.

Club legend David Silva looks set to make way to the Italian capital, swapping one Sky Blue shirt for another, Milinkovic-Savic could move the other way if City lodge the club’s desired €80 million (£72 million) asking price, according to French news outlet le10sport.

The report also claim that PSG have declared their interest time and time again for the 6ft 3 powerhouse, tabling a €60 million (£54 million) offer which did not convince Lazio to sell one of their most prized assets.

As a result, confidence to get a deal done between the two clubs is fading, with City, United, Juventus and Real Madrid all apparently able to offer a more substantial transfer fee.

According to WhoScored, the 25-year-old averages 2.4 shots per 90 whilst winning 3.5 aerial duels over those minutes – potentially hinting at an injection of much-needed height in the squad and another attacking outlet in midfield.
