Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan target Lazar Samardzic is being followed by Juventus and Barcelona for the summer. As we reported here two months ago, Milan attempted the sign the 18 year old midfielder in January as part of the deal for Krzystof Piatek with Hertha Berlin but this was turned down. The midfielder score 16 goals and 10 assists in the junior leagues before playing just three times for the first team.

Fabrizio Romano is noting that Juventus have reached out to the agent of the player and are preparing an offer as Samardzic has not yet signed a professional contract with Berlin. Paolo Maldini has previously met him as he sees him to be a good candidate for the club. He plays as an attacking midfielder who stands out for his clinical finishing, strength and acceleration.
