Lazio are trying to keep Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, but he is being tempted by Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid interest. So the Italians are also thinking about a replacement for the young Serbian midfielder.
One of the candidates is Barcelona’s Andre Gomes. In Portugal and Italy they say that Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi thinks the Barca man is an option if the Serb leaves.
One of the reasons is that he is not in the Portugal World Cup squad so he would arrive in good physical condition.
They are not the only club in Serie A linked with Gomes. Napoli too, second in Serie A last year and in the Champions League, are also thinking about the Barcelona man.
Ernesto Valverde lost confidence in Gomes during the season and he became a total reserve. The Portuguese admitted in an interview he was having a rough time at Camp Nou.
