‘Get him now’, ‘Gini replacement’: Some Liverpool fans want 26-year-old signed, amid reports

Some Liverpool fans on Twitter claim they want to sign Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, amid reports they are interested in him. 

Italian publication II Messaggero states that Jurgen Klopp’s side are considering launching a bid to try bring the 26-year-old to Anfield.

In addition, the Merseyside giants may increase their interest after a scouting mission. 

Milinkovic-Savic looks the complete central midfielder on paper. For instance, he finished this club season with eight goals and 11 assists for Lazio to highlight his attacking influence. Additionally, he’s a box-to-box powerhouse that does his shift defensively because of his great work rate.

Certainly, he’s been one of the best performers in Serie A in recent years. He won Lazio’s player of the season award for the 2020/21 campaign.

Can Milinkovic-Savic fill Wijnaldum void for Liverpool?

If Liverpool can afford it, they need to bring in a top-class central midfielder for next season.

Georginio Wijnaldum, who is joining Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, is going to leave a large gap in the Reds XI.

His running power in Klopp’s side for several seasons has been crucial. In contrast, Milinkovic-Savic is someone who possesses similar traits. 

The Serbia international should be about to enter the peak of his career at his age, so it would be great to see him move across to the Premier League.

Liverpool have already shown intent with the summer signing of Ibrahima Konate, but it may take a little more to get back in the title mix next season. They should be seeking revenge on rivals Manchester City.

Above all, there is total faith in Klopp’s ability as a manager. Therefore, if he gives the green light, they should go all out for the Lazio maestro.

Here are some Liverpool fans discussing Milinkovic-Savic:
