Arsenal are reportedly closing in on a Serie A midfield powerhouse

Arteta is closing in on a Serie A midfield powerhouse: offer on the way?

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is arguably one of Europe’s best midfielders; if you haven’t seen what the Serbian midfield magician is doing in Serie A, you should look him up. Googling his stats will no doubt leave you speechless; he has already managed three goals and seven assists from midfield in 14 Serie A games. So, as a Gunner, why should you be concerned about Savic? According to the Express, the Lazio man’s transfer links to Arsenal are stronger than ever.

According to the publication, Arsenal and the 27-year-old’s agent held talks, and for the last few months, Arsenal scouts have been busy doing their homework on whether to bid or not to bid. Now a decision to bid appears to have been made.

With the midfielder only 18 months away from becoming a free agent, Arsenal can sign him for a cheap fee. It’s unclear whether Lazio wants to lose him, but there’s no indication he’ll stay, so accepting a reasonable offer for his services may be prudent.

Ultimately, if Savic joins Arteta’s project, he will have completed the Spaniard’s midfield puzzle and Arteta will have many more top options to choose from depending on the opposition.

  1. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a monster. If we are looking for a POWERfull midfield player Savic is THE man. At 27 he has a good 4-5 years at the top. If we mean it do it.

  2. A very fine footballer who would be a powerful addition to our midfield.The fact that he did not particularly shine at the World Cup is not relevant as,apart from the skilful Tadic of Ajax he was surrounded by a bunch of very average team mates.While Xhaka is having a fine season, I consider Savic to be a class above him.

  3. While I don’t like mixing football with international politics, I have a question about Milinkovic-Savic
    joining Arsenal. Given the tensions (hostility?)
    between Kosovo and Serbia, would Xhaka be
    comfortable with Savic on the team? If not,
    I believe that Xhaka has earned enough loyalty
    from Arsenal that we should look elsewhere for
    a new midfielder. That said, I would be thrilled if
    this is a non-issue and they cold play together for
    Arsenal.

  4. A very well made, salient point which could be an issue to preclude us from furthering our interest in Savic.

  5. Despite the possibly pertinent point made by Goonerderhair, above, for some reason, perhaps sheer gut instinct, I tend towards taking this latest JA, for once, SERIOUSLY.
    Given his position and his age of 27, neither young nor old,and his pedigree, together with the ages of Xhaka and Partey , my instincts are that we are probably interested. Though price will be the key issue, IMO!

  6. I think this would be THE key signing this transfer window. Strengthen the midfield which in turns strengthens our defence which is very good right now which means we’re harder to beat and the forward players we have available are more then capable of putting the ball in the back of the net!

    1. Yes indeed Pco.Keeping clean sheets is just as important as scoring goals in most matches.In this regard Ramsdale has improved in most areas as the season wears on and I hope our regular centre backs, namely Saliba and Gabriel can kick on from their performances against West Ham when I thought they were both vulnerable on occasions.Personally I would love to see Ben White and Tomi in tandem at some stage in the season as they strike me as a pair who could cope with most forwards in the league.Where they might fall down is in their lack of aerial dominance although to be fair, Tomi is strong in that department.In any event if we keep on winning any flaws in our make-up will be forgotten about.

  7. I think this one might be more of a summer purchase, I doubt that they’d want to lose him mid-season when they can easily sell him in the summer. An offer of titan proportions might sway them but we won’t do it like that
