Arsenal launch £47M offer for Spanish-born central midfielder

Arsenal are claimed to have launched their bid to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio this summer.

The Gunners have finally announced their fourth signing of the transfer window in Gabriel Jesus today, but there is no signs of our spending spree ending any time soon.

According to Il Messaggero, we have now tabled an offer of £47 Million for the services of SMS.

The central midfielder has been amongst the most consistent performers in Serie A since joining from Genk in 2015, notching up 48 goals and 41 assists in his 231 league appearances for Lazio.

Goals is something that we have lacked from our central midfield area in recent seasons, and a more creative addition would certainly be welcomed.

If SMS could bring anything close to his current level to the Premier League, he would be a huge asset for any team in the division. He’s been wanted by some of the best teams in Europe in recent years, and would no doubt be another huge coup if we could get a deal done, and would be yet another huge statement of intent shown by our club.

Could the Serbia international be the ideal partner for Thomas Partey in midfield?

  1. Well Chelsea and Newcastle failed with a 47 mil offer, not enough, so i doubt we tried the same.

  2. If the never ending rumours are correct, then you are correct, the spending spree will go on.
    However, I would suggest that we step back from these rumours and live in the real world, where action speaks louder than words.
    Just yesterday, Tieleman’s was a done deal, as was the signing of Hickey all wrapped up and ready to go days before.

    On the flip side, Bellerin was never going to wear the shirt again and no one wanted him – made Captain and three clubs after his services!!!

    My two hopes are Gnarby and Martinez, but the squad of Mikel’s players are slowly being built back up.
    Let’s not get carried away with every rumour of a missed opportunity, imminent signings or being gazumped at the last minute!!!

    We are obviously still in the market for a new player(s) so trust the process and enjoy the cricket ☺️🏏🏏🏏

    1. Yes my mate you are right rumours are us away as I said before media will make the club not to sign players jealous is in their eye’s

    2. It has been a long time since I was this excited for the new season. I truly hope we compete hard this season ! Gunner 4 life.

  3. Oops i hope he comes, good tackling, physical, good passing range, experience, i did take him over tielemans

    1. I’m with you, although it’ll be difficult to convince Lazio for that price. I’d say impossible.

    2. Tielemans is an extraordinary having been a regular in the premier league he will fit in right away. I love tielemans alot. He is fast, he does tackles perfectly well, long rage passes. And above all he is so good at shots of outside the box. And that is something we lack alot. Inability to mount pressure.
      I believe in arteta’s project 💯

  4. Would of loved him a few years ago when he
    was unplayable in Europe. Still a quality player
    but not worth the price tag.

    Unless Lazio are willing to take Torreria and 25M
    hard pass

    1. I believe that’s what they are aiming at, player plus cash and add-ons if need be.

  5. If it is true, I support.He has the experience,his physicality and is tactically good going forward.A huge welcome.

  6. “Il MESSAGGERO”! Never heard of it , unsurprisingly. These more and more remote and untrustworthy sites appear on JA as the days and weeks of the window go by .

    Each is more ridiculous than the previous one.

    I trust what Ornstein tells us and not much else at all about anything rumoured from ANY other source, TBH!

      1. So are pickpockets PAT! And dangerous drivers and female bootom pinchers! But I maintain JA has a duty to use only widely respected rumour sources and to leave such as IM alone. However, IF you can prove when IM has correctly predited any of our transfers in advance, I might give your view more thought.

        But I say you will NOT be able to show it to us! Because it has no track record, except of failed rumours, to happen. As we both well know!

  7. not Gnabri please , would xend wages spiralling amid Saka discussions especially.
    SMS? dont see it

  8. High quality midfielder. As midfielder he scored 11 goals in Serie A last term. But he won’t come cheap. Unrealistic target I think.

  9. I doubt this very much. Just doesn’t seem like a transfer that we would do, given bigger teams have tried and failed.

    I’d still take Tielemans anyway, PL experience, better value, when you consider you could have Onana too for the same amount as SMS it’s a better option for adding depth.

  10. If this were true it would be the signing of the season for us. He is a level up and a real Athlete. Amazingly strong player.

  11. Arsenal should not try to sell Gabriel at all
    Why do they want to sell him?
    Pls the Brazilian Defender is one of our Best Players

  12. Well, we pissed about trying to sign Lisandro Martinez for a pittance, so I no doubt we’ll do the same with this player.
    If we can afford him and if they’re at the right money being asked for that we can pay, then just pay it.
    Why wait for another team to jump in with the asking price and steal them from under our noses?
    With the signings we’ve made, I thought we were going forwards and in the right direction. But since Jesus was signed, we’re going backwards and in the wrong direction.
    Typical Arsenal transfer dealings.
