AC Milan could force Arsenal to miss out on another transfer target

Marcel Sabitzer has emerged as a transfer target for AC Milan and they could beat Arsenal to his signature this summer.

The Gunners have targeted the Austrian for a while as they look to bolster their midfield ahead of the next campaign.

The RB Leipzig man is one of the impressive midfielders in the Bundesliga and has just one year left on his current deal.

Arsenal needs new midfielders this summer and he could become a top new signing if he joins them.

However, Calciomercato reports that AC Milan likes his on-field displays and his leadership skills and they consider him the perfect replacement for Hakan Calhanoglu who left them this summer for free to join Inter Milan.

They have been watching him for some time now and they could speed up their interest in him in the coming days.

The report says the midfielder has a release clause of 50m euros, but he would be allowed to leave if any club pays half of that price.

Considering that he is in the final year of his current deal, Arsenal could negotiate that fee further down or wait for him to become a free agent next summer.

    One should feel bad for Arsenal. But even he wants to go to a team that plays in the CL. Both him and Milan like each other. So, unless Milan buy Vlasic, Sabitzer will go to Milan.

    We have to face the facts. We are going to struggle in this transfer window cos Arsenal are in no european competition.
    But there are still other excellent players out there or we should give our young talents the chance.

    That’s why, aside from the money, we’re not going to attract the top talent. But if we can complete most of the deals we are trying to negotiate, we should have a strong and talented squad, so that if Arteta doesn’t work out, we will be able to appoint a top coach, unlike Spurs, where a plethora of coaches have looked at their squad and said nah!

    We need this guy than we need either of Aoaur or Neves. He’s a complete midfielder,He scores, assist and relatively cheap with tons of experience at the highest level. I don’t know what Edu is waiting for

    If Arsenal want Marcel Sabitzer, or any other top class midfielder, they can’t sit on their hands and procrastinate. Of course players won’t sit by the phone waiting for the Arsenal to call. The Club doesn’t have the pull of Champions League and thus has to be proactive, put the money down and get the deals done.
    If Arsenal can’t beat Hibernian, there are real problems ahead with the first three fixtures of the season.

    Procrastination is the thief of time!
