Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly rekindled their interest in Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and are ready to meet his £87million price tag, reports say
PSG first approached Lazio for Milinkovic-Savic in summer 2018, but they were then prised out of a move by Claudio Lotito’s staggering €100million demand.
However, the perennial Ligue 1 champions will make a fresh attempt to lure the Serbia international away from Rome in the summer by putting an £87million bid on the table, according to the Daily Mail.
The Parisians sporting director Leonardo is a known fan of the 25-year-old, and he would have signed him already last year when he was of charge at AC Milan if the financial situation allowed.

Now, the Brazilian, who sees the former Genk man as a perfect long-term addition to the PSG squad, has the financial support to outmaneuver stiff competition from Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United.
Milinkovic-Savic is enjoying a prominent role in an astonishing Serie A campaign for Lazio, who sit top of the table for the first time in 20 years, managing four goals and five assists in 25 league outings so far this term.
Yet, PSG may have to offload some of their players to sign one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe to remain within FFP, with Thiago Silva, Thomas Munier, Laywin Kurzawa, and Edinson Cavani all expected to leave Paris in the summer.
