Liverpool are in contact with Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Lazio president Claudio Lotito will demand £85m for the Serbian, reports Calciomercato.com.
Contract talks between Lazio and Milinkovic-Savic's representatives are said to be on 'standby'. Liverpool are chasing a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, now of PSG, and Milinkovic-Savic is on the radar.
But he does still have three years remaining on his current deal. Milinkovic-Savic, 26, 'dreams' of a move to Real Madrid one day.
The 21-cap international was born in Spain.
But a move doesn't make sense for Los Blancos this year.
