Report: Arsenal on pole position to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Arsenal are on pole position to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in either the January transfer window or next summer, having already held talks with his agent about a potential move for the Lazio midfielder, according to a report from Corriere dello Sport.

Milinkovic-Savic has been one of the most impressive midfielders playing in Europe this season. He has scored five goals and contributed seven assists in all competitions for the Biancocelesti. He actually tops the way for the most assists in Serie A this term.

His agent believes that he could leave for a fee of around £44 million. However, Corriere dello Sport has suggested that Lazio are likely to want a lot more for the Serbia international.

Milinkovic-Savic has rejected Arsenal in the past. However, he is much more open to the idea of moving to the Emirates in one of the coming windows.

Milinkovic-Savic would unquestionably be an outstanding signing for the Gunners if they were able to bring him to the Premier League.

Obviously, the midfield has been a real strength for Mikel Arteta’s side this season. But they surely need more depth in the middle of the park, particularly if they are going to make a return to the Champions League next season.

Milinkovic-Savic is one of the best-performing midfielders in Europe’s top leagues when it comes to goals and assists. Meanwhile, few midfielders take more touches inside the opposition penalty area – according to FBRef.

FBRef lists Jude Bellingham, Kevin De Bruyne and Leon Goretzka as similar players to the Lazio star. So if Arsenal could bring him in, he would have the potential to be an amazing addition.
