Juventus reportedly identify Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as an ideal signing should they fail to land Paul Pogba this summer.

Juventus have reportedly identified Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as an ideal signing should they fail to land Paul Pogba this summer.

Pogba continues to be linked with a move away from Manchester United, and Juventus are said to be keen on a reunion with the France international.

However, according to Calciomercato, the Old Lady are already mapping out contingency plans in case Pogba does not return to Italy, and are looking at Milinkovic-Savic as a potential alternative.

The same report suggests that Maurizio Sarri's side are still prioritising a move for Pogba, but it has been claimed that the midfielder is likely to stay on at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side ahead of next season.

Milinkovic-Savic has contributed four goals and five assists during the 2019-20 Serie A campaign, and will see his current deal at Lazio expire in 2024.
