The 25-year-old has returned to top form this season, scoring five goals and providing seven assists in 31 appearances for the Serie A giants.

It comes after a relatively quiet campaign last year given his high standards, as he has arguably re-established himself as one of the top midfielders in Italy while also continuing to play a key role for the Serbian national team.

His form has been pivotal in helping Lazio emerge as Scudetto contenders this year, as they sit just a point off leaders Juventus with 12 games remaining, assuming that the season is completed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
