Man Utd boost as Lazio, Everton Ozyakup interest confirmed

Lazio are making plans to sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer.

The Mirror says Manchester United have been given a boost in pursuit of Milinkovic-Savic with a potential replacement for the Serbian tipped to join Lazio.

Besiktas star Oguzhan Özyakup has been rumoured to be a target for the Biancocelesti should they lose their star midfielder.

And sources in Italy report that the Turkish player's agent has confirmed Lazio and a host of other clubs' interest, which could pave the way for the Italians to release Milinkovic-Savic in a big-money move.

"I can confirm that Lazio, Marseille, Everton, Milan and Valencia are all observing and are interested in Oguzhan," Ozyakup's agency confirmed. "He would be the perfect addition to Lazio's side, given the possibility that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic will be leaving the club in the summer, and given the age of both Lucas Leiva and Marco Parolo."
