Report: Arsenal have been talking to 'astonishingly gifted' midfielder's agent over £44m move

Arsenal are once again being linked with a move for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and have even had discussions with his agent.

That’s according to 90Min anyway, who in a feature on who could sign the Serbian midfielder, write how Arsenal have actually been in talks with his agent.

It’s claimed by 90Min that Arsenal would love to sign the impressive 27-year-old. Further, it’s claimed a bargain £44m fee might even be enough to tempt Lazio into doing business in the immediate term.

Of course, Arsenal’s interest isn’t brand new. Just a few weeks back it was claimed that the Gunners were keen on signing Milinkovic-Savic and the player himself was even open to the switch.

Regarded as an ‘astonishingly gifted’ midfielder, Milinkovic-Savic has forged a reputation in Europe as being one of the very best in his position. For Arsenal, he ticks a lot of boxes with his size, ability to get goals, and general dominance in the middle of the park being enticing factors.

Milinkovic-Savic has been watched by a number of PL sides in the past. However, the mention of a £44m fee is as low a valuation as there has been so far. Arsenal, then, might well be tempted.

TBR’s View: Milinkovic-Savic completes Arsenal

If the Gunners can somehow pull this off and also land number one forward target, Mykhaylo Mudryk, then there is a big chance it completes the jigsaw for Mikel Arteta.

The Serbian is the sort of midfielder who fits into any midfield in the world. He very much has a bit of everything to his game and his size means he’d be no shirker when it came to the tough world of PL football.

At just £44m, Milinkovic-Savic seems a bargain too good to pass up on right now. And if Arsenal can do it, then it’s a signing that just has to be made.
