Milinkovic-Savic is one of a number of top talents currently at Lazio.

Ciro Immobile is landing all the plaudits this season with his 17 goals, while it was Keita Balde who shone for large parts of the last campaign before joining Monaco.

However, Milinkovic-Savic is considered the player who really makes Simone Inzaghi’s men tick, and is helping them mount an unlikely title challenge.

Last season, he ran the show in the famous 3-1 derby win — with Balde earning much of the credit due to his two goals.
