Arsenal set to finally land long-term target in £35m summer transfer deal
Arsenal’s pursuit of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has gained traction. According to Italian outlet Correire dello Sport, the 27-year-old Serbian has been made available for £35 million this summer, with his contract with the Serie A club set to expire in the summer of 2024.
Milinkovic-Savic is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world, and the Gunners have long been interested in him. Mikel Arteta’s team has long wanted to bring a midfielder to the Emirates.
The Serbian could prove to be a valuable addition to Arsenal’s midfield. With Lazio willing to accept a low offer, the Gunners can expect stiff competition. Midfielders Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey, and Granit Xhaka already play for the north London club.
They have already signed ex-Chelsea midfielder Jorginho in the winter transfer window, but will look to strengthen their squad. With the team preparing to compete in the UEFA Champions League next season, Milinkovic-Savic could be a valuable addition if they want to make a long run in the competition.
Lazio had previously fought hard to keep the player in Rome, but with reports that they are willing to offload him for a much lower price than his true worth, many teams will be looking to add a player of his calibre.
Milinkovic-Savic has been instrumental in Lazio’s push for a top-four finish this season. This season, he has six goals and eight assists in 30 appearances for the Biancocelesti.
