No Milinkovic-Savic agreement with United says player's agent

  No Milinkovic-Savic agreement with United says player's agent Mateja Kezman, the agent of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has denied claims that the player has an agreement in place to join Manchester United. Kezman explained to Lazionews.eu, as reported by the Manchester Evening News, that there is interest in the player, but nothing has been agreed. “It’s only normal there is enormous interest in Sergej between some top European clubs, but we do not have any agreement with any club.” There had been claims that the player was set to join Manchester United this summer after a standout season for Lazio. Milinkovic-Savic has played a key role in Lazio’s success this season, with the Serie A outfit pushing for Champions League qualification. United have been linked with a summer move for the player throughout the season. The Lazio midfielder has drawn comparisons to Paul Pogba and is thought to be considered as the missing piece in United’s midfield, a position that they have struggled in this campaign.

The Lazio forward has previously impressed in England with Birmingham, and he has maintained his good form in Serie A. Zarate joined Lazio in 2008, but he is now being linked with a move to Arsenal and his agent claims to have opened negotiations.

However, Milan are ready to test Arsenal ’s resolve, although it is not yet clear if they will seek a loan move or a permanent deal. Groves v Eubank Jr stream: Exclusive live coverage on talkSPORT. Pogba not wanted by Real, Liverpool in shock Spurs raid, Arsenal 's No.1 target.

Arsenal’s Lucas Perez’s agent has confirmed that the forward would be very interested in joining Lazio.

Perez’s agent has been quoted as saying this when asked about his player’s thoughts on Lazio:

“He’s always liked them”

This comes days after it was reported that Lazio asked about the availability of Perez, with his loan club Deportivo La Coruna being relegated from La Liga and Perez being surplus to requirements at the Emirates.

“Lazio asked for him last year, but nothing came of it,”

Rodrigo Fernandez, Perez’s agent, told the Italian media.

“Lucas has always liked Lazio and the city of Rome, plus his great friend, Luis Alberto, plays for them.”

Arsenal flop Lucas Perez wanted by Lazio

  Arsenal flop Lucas Perez wanted by Lazio Serie A side Lazio are reportedly considering a summer move for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez. The Mirror, who cite Inside Futbol, reports that the Italian club are keen to take the Spaniard, who has spent this season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna. Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is said to be a fan of the player, who has only scored seven league goals in La Liga. The Italian side will be bracing themselves for interest in free-scoring striker Ciro Immobile this summer. The 28-year-old has scored 29 league goals this season and will undoubtedly attract interest from elsewhere. Perez could be seen as a replacement for the Italian international but could be someone brought into to provide competition for the forward. The Spaniard struggled to settle at the Emirates and was swiftly sent out on loan, with his long-term future appearing to be away from the London club.

West Ham join Chelsea in the race to sign Felipe Anderson .
West Ham are reportedly “pushing hard” to sign Chelsea target Felipe Anderson from Serie A giants Lazio, according to Lee Clayton. Lazio finished the season in fifth, following the incredibly dramatic 3-2 loss on the final day of the season again Inter Milan, who leapfrogged them into the Champions League places, in the most heartbreaking fashion for Lazio fans. However, Anderson has been a crucial and integral part of the Lazio squad which has performed excellently this season in Serie A, making it to the Europa League quarter-finals, losing narrowly 6-5 on aggregate to Red Bull Salzburg. Newly appointed West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini will be looking to make an addition to his midfield at the London Stadium following the departure of Joao Mario back to his parent club Inter Milan. Anderson, the 25-year-old, would be a great signing, but many big clubs across the European leagues are looking also at him. Cheslea are said to be keen to sign Anderson too, but the uncertainty over Antonio Conte’s future may prevent them from doing any deals in the immediate future, although the Blues will be confident that the Brazilian would join them over the Hammers if given the choice.
