Boost for Arsenal as their target wants to move to a club that can win silverware

Arsenal has been handed a major boost in their bid to bolster their squad this month with some new players.

Mikel Arteta’s side has just lost out to Chelsea in the race to sign Mykhailo Mudryk and they will be keen to ensure they can get another player through the door.

One man who has been on their radar over the last few months is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as the Lazio midfielder approaches the end of his current deal at the Serie A club.

He has 18 months left on his current agreement and has not been keen to sign an extension with them.

A report on Corriere dello Sport insists the midfielder is very likely to leave the Italians because he is looking to move to a club where he can win trophies.

Arsenal tops the league standing in England now and could end the season with at least one trophy, so they are in a good place to convince him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Milinkovic-Savic has a terrific reputation in Serie A and the midfielder could be a good addition to our squad.

But we must not be complacent in our chase because several suitors want the Serbian and the club that shows it wants him the most will win the race.

  1. Ok great we are linked to a fantastic midfielder to give new presence, bite, skill, determination and cover for either of Partey (who is a lovely combo of Vieira and Petite a great disruptor and also distributor – just wish he’d scored that volley v Spurs!!) and is amazing. Plus the new hero in Xhaka who has been reborn.

    BUT why oh why are we talking about helping Chelsea who do nothing but scupper our plans (with their dirty Abramovic money of old) and hopefully have overpaid for Murdryk.

    So why are we talking Sterling who blows hot and cold and is just not consistent enough hence Chelsea buying someone else.

    They must be laughing all the way to the bank if we come in for him. It happened with Willian and the curly haired overrated defender Luiz, please not again.!!

    Arsenal/Edu grab a Serb or two, then just go to Brazil spend 30m on 5 or 6 players and turn 1 or 2 into world class players. Better option, more players and less risk.

  2. I wonder why the Arsenal management feel we do not need reinforcement, it just seems to me like they aren’t Interested in trophies, even when they see that we haven’t wasted funds like Chelsea and some other clubs. It’s really hurting.

  3. The decision to purchase players is down to the gaffer in my opinion , the war chest is available but the gaffer is very meticulous historically the last day of the window is generally when hell pop loose.

    The problem is I have no stomach for this kind of drama in the present campaign.

  4. I sense a lot of panic in Arsenal fans at the moment. Personally, I don’t think it’s warranted.

    There’s a difference between a good player and one who will be first team quality.

    Not many of our first team are easy to replace (or to displace if you look at it from a new player’s point of view), so most people Arsenal might usefully buy will be wondering “Can I break into this team or will I sit on the bench apart from the cup competitions?”.

    Buying cover for cups is one thing, buying someone who can play in the PL is another. But what hapens with the cups is that the cover p;lays early on and when we progress to later stages the first team takes over.

    We are close to that point already this season. The EL is at last 16 for us and in the FA Cup we have City away next and if we get through that then there won’t be many rounds left, if any, where the second string will be involved.

    So to me it’s really quite simple – anyone joining now needs to be capable of filling in the first team without a loss of quality and doing so quite quickly (there’s going to be time to get up to speed on how we play etc).

    So how many players are up for sale in January who fit that description? How many of those also pass the Edu character test? Not many, would be my take on it. Be careful what you wish for.

    1. IDKWI am nervous because am aware of what happen in the last winter window.

      A little concerned because of the last transfer deadline day drama.
      We are now pass the middle of the window and need to hear a few clubs resolves firmly tested.

      Lots of options out there, herd today that Sterling is on the market, Zaha, Tossard, Caicedo et .
      There must be some room for a short term deal or two.

      Historically clubs wait until the last day of the window in search of good deals, what am saying this campaign should be different pay a few extra quid if we have to and get the adequate back up we need.

    2. IDKWIC, Panic is not warranted but realistic concern certainly IS!

      We have only lost JESUS and also ESR, for any length of time this season and ALL our other key players have been available, most of the time.

      With a busier fixture list soon to begin again and a squad of such shallow depth of real quality, it would be EXTREMELY SENSIBLE to be concerned enough to get proper depth in and in THIS window too.

      I agree with all the points you make but it is the one you left out, that concerns me most; our OBVIOUS lack of depth in quality.

      It would be extremely UNLIKELY that we go through the second half of our season with the same relative injury LUCK we have had so far .

      That needs saying, I strongly suggest!

  5. We seem to be a model club now, Gone are the days when we’d do our business without anyone giving a sh*t. Newcastle are now actively chasing Diaby! They didnt fancy him that much three months ago and thought he was extremely overpriced for his level but are now willing to “negotiate” after we made contact the other day ha ha. Boehly is on the watch out for our next targets too. Conte thinks we’ve been extremely smart in our recruitment and now have a team that can “suffer” but also play meaning he wouldn’t mind taking a closer look at what we intent to sign. Tough times ahead.

  6. “But we must not be complacent in our chase because several suitors want the Serbian and the club that shows it wants him the most will win the race.”

    This statement is one sure sign we shouldn’t waste any more time on any articles about SMS.

  7. Our problem is taking too long to negotiate deal which makes us look as if we don’t have money,, we delayed Auba and and Laca and end up buying them expensive. And the board never learned any lesson on that.
