Savic’s agent Kezman reveals like Europe’s powerhouse PSG is also bidding for the youngster and so far now he has received many offers from Europe’s big guns.


The former Chelsea forward Kezman also heaped praised about his client, as this season he has scored nine goals for Lazio and 11 goals for them in all competitions, and also he compared his client with the legendary French midfielder Zinedine Zidane.


Kezman voiced: "When Sergej came to Italy, he was compared with Pogba, because at that moment it was probably the easiest comparison to make in terms of characteristics,"


"I do really respect Pogba, let's be clear, and other linkers who can run and work for the team, but I think now Sergej has different and better quality than Pogba.


"Over the last six months, he has made enormous progress at Lazio. If he retains his health, he can become the most complete player on the planet.


"He has remarkable attributes and you'll not find another player in the world with that power, muscular structure and height combined with technique and tactical awareness. He has the touch of a Brazilian and some of the things he does remind me of Zinedine Zidane.


"Milinkovic-Savic is the most effective midfielder in Europe right now, as he can score goals in a variety of ways and has a good head on his shoulders. I've played with Arjen Robben, Frank Lampard and some of the best in Europe and I think Sergej can surpass them if he keeps this up.
