Arsenal claimed to have had €50M bid rejected for top-class midfielder

Reports in Italy claim that Arsenal have had an offer of €50 Million rejected by Lazio for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Gunners are believed to be keen on bolstering their central midfield options this summer, with the likes of Youri Tielemans, Douglas Luiz and Milinkovic-Savic amongst those most strongly linked of late.

The Serbian midfielder is one who is expected to be on the move, with reports claiming that his side are believed to be open to his exit with just two years remaining on his current deal, but no club is believed to have found an agreement with Lazio as of yet.

CalcioMercato claims that we have made an offer however, but with his club only willing to entertain offers of at least €70 Million our offer was rejected.

It remains to be seen how much we would be willing to pay for the 27 year-old’s signature, but he should certainly be considered as somebody who would be an upgrade on our current options in midfield. He has been amongst the best CMs in Serie A in recent seasons, and would surely be suited to the Premier League.

Do you believe SMS should be considered a risky signing?

  1. Bad news coming out about Thomas…..
    Well if the cap fits then its his own fault , hoping its untrue and no one was really harmed.

      1. @Admin Pat
        Thanks for setting them straight. There seems to be a few “unknowns” popping up and spreading misinformation. The latest one is about R Nelsons supposed bust up with Arteta…

  2. I reject this unfounded rumour that “we have made a bid” for SMS as rubbish. Not remotely believable and I do not think we are even interested in him at all.

    I firmly believe many of these false rumours that appear are being used as useful decoys by our club , who when they DO BUY, will do so swiftly and like Vieira, out of the blue , unannounced beforehand.

    I also don’t see us buying Teilemans for that same reason therefore.

  3. A really do believe most of these rumors could be playing in our hand, but the intrests in Martinez and Raphinha seems genuine.

    One thing that’s certain, no one seems to have any idea the size of the gaffer war chest, unlike in previous years

    Having said that a top top addition could well be on the cards

  4. Arsenal Chiefs should go all out and get Milinkovic-Savic and stop dilly dallying on this one plus a left back b’coz Tierney is prone to injuries and our squad will be home and dry. Someone tell Edu and Arteta to stop wasting time and splash the cash!!!

  5. I don’t think we should pay that figure for 27year man.He is a short term solution,we better pay that amount to to a person who feet in our profile as a club.

    1. Yaya Joined Mancity at 27, Suarez joined Barca at 27, Modric joined Real Madrid at 27. Enough of this senseless whining about a player who is 27 years old. Who do you want in the squad? Kids?
