Marko Grujic urged to complete Lazio move this summer

  Marko Grujic urged to complete Lazio move this summer Liverpool youngster Marko Grujic is being urged to complete a move to Serie A side Lazio this summer. According to the Liverpool Echo, Lazio midfielder and Grujic’s fellow countryman Sergej Milinkovic-Savic would love to see the 22-year-old in Italy next season. “I told him that if he goes to Rome (to join Lazio), he will be fine. I’ll leave the shirt and the locker directly to him.” Grujic is a target for both Lazio and Cardiff, with a place in Liverpool’s first-team squad looking unlikely for the player next season. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff, helping them secure promotion back to the top flight. Neil Warnock is said to be a fan of the player and believes he would be a valuable addition to his squad as he prepares for Premier League football. Grujic has been alongside Milinkovic-Savic with Serbia at the World Cup, but if the player does make the move to Lazio, there are no guarantees the latter will still be there. Milinkovic-Savic is being linked with big-money moves to Juventus and Real Madrid after a standout season in Lazio.

Juventus are reportedly out of the deal due to their signing of former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo. The deal has obviously taken a lot out of their budget, meaning a deal for Milinkovic-Savic is now off the table.

If Real Madrid are to sign the midfielder however, they may have to pay more than the €120 million they have offered so far, with Lazio being historically tight-fisted.
