No Milinkovic-Savic agreement with United says player's agent

  No Milinkovic-Savic agreement with United says player's agent Mateja Kezman, the agent of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has denied claims that the player has an agreement in place to join Manchester United. Kezman explained to, as reported by the Manchester Evening News, that there is interest in the player, but nothing has been agreed. “It’s only normal there is enormous interest in Sergej between some top European clubs, but we do not have any agreement with any club.” There had been claims that the player was set to join Manchester United this summer after a standout season for Lazio. Milinkovic-Savic has played a key role in Lazio’s success this season, with the Serie A outfit pushing for Champions League qualification. United have been linked with a summer move for the player throughout the season. The Lazio midfielder has drawn comparisons to Paul Pogba and is thought to be considered as the missing piece in United’s midfield, a position that they have struggled in this campaign.

The Lazio forward has previously impressed in England with Birmingham, and he has maintained his good form in Serie A. Zarate joined Lazio in 2008, but he is now being linked with a move to Arsenal and his agent claims to have opened negotiations.

However, Milan are ready to test Arsenal ’s resolve, although it is not yet clear if they will seek a loan move or a permanent deal. Groves v Eubank Jr stream: Exclusive live coverage on talkSPORT. Pogba not wanted by Real, Liverpool in shock Spurs raid, Arsenal 's No.1 target.

Arsenal’s Lucas Perez’s agent has confirmed that the forward would be very interested in joining Lazio.

Perez’s agent has been quoted as saying this when asked about his player’s thoughts on Lazio:

“He’s always liked them”

This comes days after it was reported that Lazio asked about the availability of Perez, with his loan club Deportivo La Coruna being relegated from La Liga and Perez being surplus to requirements at the Emirates.

“Lazio asked for him last year, but nothing came of it,”

Rodrigo Fernandez, Perez’s agent, told the Italian media.

“Lucas has always liked Lazio and the city of Rome, plus his great friend, Luis Alberto, plays for them.”

Arsenal flop Lucas Perez wanted by Lazio

  Arsenal flop Lucas Perez wanted by Lazio Serie A side Lazio are reportedly considering a summer move for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez. The Mirror, who cite Inside Futbol, reports that the Italian club are keen to take the Spaniard, who has spent this season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna. Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is said to be a fan of the player, who has only scored seven league goals in La Liga. The Italian side will be bracing themselves for interest in free-scoring striker Ciro Immobile this summer. The 28-year-old has scored 29 league goals this season and will undoubtedly attract interest from elsewhere. Perez could be seen as a replacement for the Italian international but could be someone brought into to provide competition for the forward. The Spaniard struggled to settle at the Emirates and was swiftly sent out on loan, with his long-term future appearing to be away from the London club.

“He still has two years left on his contract with Arsenal, so we need to talk to them first.”

“As for Lucas, he likes the idea of playing for Lazio, but it’s still too early to talk about it.”

West Ham in pole position to sign Barcelona reject .
West Ham are in pole position to sign Marlon from Barcelona B this summer. Marlon Santos da Silva Barbosa, known as Marlon, joined Barcelona B on loan from Fluminese in the summer of 2016. Later that year, he made his debut for the Barcelona first team, whilst they were managed by the now Chelsea target Luis Enrique. Having joined Barcelona on a permanent deal last summer, the 22-year-old was not included in the plans for the 2017-18 season so he joined OGC Nice on a two-year loan deal. Since joining the French side, the Brazilian’s form has attracted the interest of several clubs from the Prem, including West Ham and Leicester City. The Hammers have already approached Barcelona and Nice to express their interest in signing the centre-back this summer. West Ham may have to compete with Leicester City who may feel they have the upper hand with the player given Claude Puel’s Nice connection. Despite this it is reported in Spain that West Ham are the favourites to sign the centre-back as Pellegrini looks to add to his squad ready for the next season. Barcelona are yet to receive a “formal offer” from the east London club.
