Is it now time for Arsenal to sign Milinkovic-Savic to compete with Thomas Partey?

After Mudryk, Why Shouldn’t Arteta Go For Savic?

Despite all of the transfer rumours linking Arsenal to a move for an attacker, Arteta needs to strengthen his midfield. Yes, an attacker is required to replace Gabriel Jesus and supplement Saka, Martinelli, and Nketiah in Arteta’s firing line.

However, Arsenal’s engine room must be strengthened as well; Arsenal fans continue to be concerned about what will happen if Thomas Partey is injured. Some argue that Arsenal’s No. 5’s injury near the end of last season cost them a top-four finish.

Anyway, who does Arteta sign if he wants to bring in an impactful midfielder? There have been numerous midfielders linked with Arsenal, but could Sergej Milinkovic-Savic be the right man for Arteta?

The Lazio midfielder has been a consistent performer in Serie A for several seasons; he can play in any midfield role, and speculation suggests he may be open to a new challenge. As far as moving for him is concerned, Dean Jones, speaking to Give Me Sport, assures Arteta that now is the time to approach Lazio about Savic. “The one thing in Arsenal’s favour here is that Milinkovic-Savic didn’t quite light up the World Cup in a way that he could have done,” said Jones.

“If Arsenal do want him, this would probably be the time to make their move, because they’d have a reasonably clear run at him.” This season, the 27-year-old has three goals and seven assists in 14 games.

So, why can’t Savic be the priority transfer target following Mudryk?

  1. Good 👍 idea for the club to sign new players in January. Arsenel really need some change because some players need replacement because some numbers are injured like gabriell Jesus’ . Thomas, Arsenel need to be careful with others clubs because still there are lots of games 🎮 to play. It’s good that Arsenel still be on top of the league. But we still need some changes from new players. Good luck wish the club all the best 👍 👌 😍

  2. Milinkovic-Savic would be competition for Xhaka, not Partey. He’s a box to box midfielder, not a defensive midfielder.

  3. Imho Amrabat would be the perfect signing to provide competition for Partey and if we offer £35M-£40M I’m confident Fiorentina would accept it. Danilo being the fall back option should we not be able to get him.

  4. We should save our pennies so that we have the cash for the perfect signing, Mr Ruben Neves.

  5. Savic always strikes me as a midfielder suited to Serie A where he is allowed time on the ball, a luxury not afforded in the Premier League. Furthermore, the player would have an expectation of being an automatic first team choice which is not what the project needs right now. His price tag is another issue. Personally I’d prefer to purchase a player already adapted to the pace of the English game and who would accept being a squad player but an upgrade on Elneny. Norgaard from Brentford would be a good buy, even Sander Berge, as both are technically proficient but also have the capacity to dominate in the tackle.

  6. This guy Sander Berge is a solid defensive midfielder, surprisingly his name has never prop up, he’s far better than Tielemans, Odegaard should knows him well too.

    Think he would cost anywhere between £35 – £40 mil

  7. Savic for Partey? Why on earth Arteta buys a player as a competition to play along side his greatest enemy, Granit Xhaka? We don’t want an Albanian vs Serb war at training. Do your research, writer.
