Al Hilal, the Saudi Pro League side, has emerged as a strong contender to sign Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić from Lazio. The 28-year-old, who has attracted interest from several top clubs, including Juventus and Premier League teams, is considering a move away from Italy. Al Hilal has submitted a bid and aims to secure Milinković-Savić’s services for the upcoming season.
Al Hilal has made a “concrete and important proposal” to Lazio, with a fee of €40 million, as reported by Fabrizio Romano. The Saudi club is keen on acquiring the services of the talented midfielder and has presented him with an attractive three-year contract. Milinković-Savić is among the latest high-profile players to receive a lucrative proposal to move to Saudi Arabia.
Milinković-Savić has established himself as one of Serie A’s top midfielders in recent seasons, contributing significantly to Lazio’s success. Last season, he scored nine goals and provided eight assists, helping his team secure Champions League qualification. Despite attracting interest from Premier League clubs in previous transfer windows, the Serbian international is yet to make a decision on his future
Interest from Other Clubs
While Al Hilal has expressed strong interest in Milinković-Savić, other clubs, including Juventus, have also been linked with the midfielder. However, negotiations between Lazio and Al Hilal have reached an advanced stage. The potential move to Al Hilal would see Milinković-Savić join the likes of Ruben Neves and Kalidou Koulibaly, who have already made lucrative transfers to the Saudi side.
