Manchester City scouts present in Italy on Wednesday night to watch midfielder – report

Manchester City continue to monitor highly-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić, who is reportedly one of the names under consideration by Pep Guardiola to reinforce his squad.

The 22-year-old Serb has been in excellent form for the Biancocelesti recently, scoring three goals in their last three games, including a brace against Nice in the UEFA Europa League.

And according to an exclusive report by TMW, Manchester City had a scouting presence at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara last night as Bologna hosted Milinković-Savić’s Lazio in a Serie A fixture, with the midfielder again leaving a good impression.

Milinković-Savić opened the scoring after just four minutes in Lazio’s 2-1 win over Bologna, while also finishing with a 87.5% pass success rate from 72 passes.

The tall midfielder now has four goals this season in all competitions and looks to be one City’s talent-spotters are keeping a close eye on with at least one midfielder likely to arrive next summer when Yaya Touré’s contract expires.

Another potential recruit, Julian Weigl, today followed City on Instagram in a move that has social media talking.
