Man Utd are interested in signing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to reports in Italy.

Former Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær was reportedly eager to add another central midfielder this summer, but was unable to bring one in.

Instead, they signed Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, spending over £ 100 million for the trio.

Has Man Utd had the best or worst preliminary ideas?

Despite their strong summer window, Man Utd are currently number eight in the Premier League and fired Solskjær due to their poor form.

The Manchester club can improve the squad when the window reopens in January, with rumors of a switch to Milinkovic-Savic – according to Corriere della Sera – who claims that United are ‘interested’ in the 26-year-old.

The Serb could be an ideal replacement for Paul pogba, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

In addition, his agent – former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman – suggested that Milinkovic-Savic could soon leave Lazio: “He is a fantastic club player, soon the time will come for him to live a new adventure and new dreams,” he said.

His current contract at the Stadio Olimpico expires in 2024 and has been with the Serie A club since 2015.

The 26-year-old has played over 250 matches and has contributed over 90 goals for Biancocelesti.

Elsewhere, Ayoze Perez has promised that Leicester City’s stars will not be distracted by speculation linking boss Brendan Rodgers to Man Utd.

Rodgers has been hailed as a replacement for Solskjær at Old Trafford and has already spoken to the squad’s management team to ease any concerns they may have.

And Perez has now insisted that there are no distractions that will hurt their performance on Thursday against Legia Warsaw.

The striker said: “We are not even thinking about that possibility (Rodgers leaves). What he has shown us, he is totally focused on where we can improve.

“We don’t think about anything else, not even him. We are really focused here.

“He’s trying to get us to think about the basics (to improve our form). You should try not to overthink and exaggerate things. We’re sure victory is near. We know the importance of tomorrow, and we are focused on it. “
