United are far from the only side who want the Serbian midfielder, with Juventus, Napoli and both Milan clubs also keen on him.

Liverpool first expressed an interest in Milinkovic-Savic as an alternative to Naby Keita, who they eventually wrapped up a club-record deal to sign next summer from RB Leizpig.

It remains to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp’s side will renew their interest in the 22-year-old despite snapping up Keita.

Milinkovic-Savic is regarded as one of the finest young midfielders in Italy and has become a regular fixture for Lazio in the last season.

Last term he made 39 appearances scoring seven goals and notching ten assists in all competitions.

Milinkovic-Savic’s agent is controversial ex-Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman, who has confirmed in recent weeks his client is seeking a new club next summer.
