Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinković-Savić may become the next high profile name to make a big money transfer move to Saudi Arabia this summer.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Al-Hilal have offered the Serbian a huge three-year contract and submitted a transfer bid to Lazio worth an estimated €40 million.

The deal hinges entirely on the decision of the midfielder, who hasn’t communicated a final decision on whether or not to accept the proposal, which would end his eight-year stint with the capital club.

The 28 year-old has been linked with several clubs in previous seasons, including Juventus, but always chose to remain loyal to Lazio, who originally acquire him from Genk in July 2015 for around €10 million.
