Manchester United are reportedly stepping up their interest in Serbia international star Sergej Milinković-Savić, according to the Daily Mail.
The Premier League side, who suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to the hands of rock-bottom West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, which resulted in rivals Manchester City being crowned league champions, have been continuously linked with a mega money move for the Lazio midfielder this summer.
The 23-year-old, who has two international caps for his country, has scored 11 goals and provided seven assists in 42 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A outfit so far this season.
Milinković-Savić, who joined the Italian side back in July 2015 following his switch from Genk, has netted 21 goals in 116 games overall for the club.
The report claims United have sent scouts out to watch the Serbian in action, as Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho looks to sign two midfielders during this summer’s transfer window.
United officials were in attendance to watch Milinković-Savić and his Lazio team mates lose 4-1 to Red Bull Salzburg in the UEFA Europa League last Thursday.
Lazio value their prized asset at a whopping £89m – the same fee United splashed out on club-record signing Paul Pogba in 2016.
