According to Il Messaggero, Liverpool are interested in signing Lazio powerhouse Sergej Milinkovi?-Savi?.

Jürgen Klopp is on the lookout for a Gini Wijnaldum replacement.

If Il Messaggero‘s news is true, the German seems to have identified the 21-cap Serbia international as someone who could fill the Dutchman’s shoes.

The news was covered by us yesterday, so let’s take a more in-depth look at what type of player the 26-year-old really is.

Milinkovi?-Savi? has been likened to Zinedine Zidane

If you’re attracting comparisons to someone like Zinedine Zidane, you’re clearly doing something right on the pitch.

Milinkovi?-Savi? even spoke about the comparison, telling FIFA that he feels flattered when being likened to the France legend.

You can see why people have compared the two.

Like Zidane, Milinkovi?-Savi? is a tall, powerful midfielder, who boasts excellent ball control and balance despite his lanky frame.

However, the Liverpool target doesn’t actually agree with the comparison, as much as it flatters him.

Milinkovi?-Savi? thinks he’s more like Yaya Touré

Interestingly, the €18 million man (£15 million) brushed Zidane comparisons aside, and actually compared himself to Yaya Touré.

Again speaking to FIFA (via Goal), the Spanish-born Serbian said: “That comparison can only flatter me. However, I see myself more as a Yaya Touré.”

If Klopp can get his hands on a hybrid of Touré and Zidane, the Anfield faithful will be licking their lips in anticipation.

It would be a serious statement if Liverpool signed Milinkovi?-Savi?, given his pedigree in the game.

At 26, he also has plenty of time to get even better.

Milinkovi?-Savi? seems perfect for the Premier League, so if Liverpool sign him, the rest of England’s top-flight should watch out.
