Would a loan move for Milinkovic-Savic be a perfect deal for Arsenal?

What an exciting time to be a Gunner! by Sam

Arteta has Arsenal top of the Premier League with 44 points, five more than their main title rivals, Manchester City, who are second on the table.

But it’s not just the Gunners’ league form that has them excited; it’s also the positive moves they’ve made in the transfer window. According to reports, Mykhailo Mudryk’s transfer to Arsenal from Shakhtar Donetsk is closer than ever.

Mudryk’s arrival is a significant boost to Arteta’s project, but is it enough to ensure Arsenal has a stronger squad to compete for the Premier League title? No.

Arteta must still address his doubts about his midfield’s lack of quality backup.

Excitingly, if the Spaniard needs to bolster his midfield, he may not need to look past the opportunity Lazio is offering him to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

According to CMW, as translated by Tribal Football, Savic is unwilling to extend his contract with Lazio, which expires in 2024. Lazio executives are so frustrated by this that they are willing to loan him out this winter on the condition that the club that recruits him agrees to an obligation to buy as part of the deal.

It is worth noting that Arsenal attempted to sign Savic last summer but failed. Now, with what’s on the table, Arsenal may be able to get a better deal for Savic, who has been compared to Kevin De Bruyne. After spending so much money on Mudryk, a loan deal for Savic could be very cost-effective.

We will have to wait and see if Arsenal approaches Lazio with their offer.

  1. Now this is too good to be true so I will take it with a grain of salt.
    Is this a sick joke, or does the lad has some form of illness we aren’t aware of.

  2. I’m not sure Mudryk’s rival is exciting any more in view of the reported price. It feels like waiting for my wife’s diamond tiara to arrive :/

    The loan for Savic sounds good, but I suspect Arsenal will want an option to buy, not an obligation – unless the obligatory price is so low/reasonable that it’s not an issue.

    1. Knowing you have someone with the speed of Mbappe that can kick with both feet and a trick or two coming off the bench, can turn a game on its head.

      This single effect can make the atmosphere electric and spark come back performance,

  3. Now that’d be a real Boss move by Edu. If this happens, City & co should just focus on FA and Carling cups. we are absolutely murdering every opposition with the new xhaka, Savic Ode and partey in the match day squad, theyre gonna cause havoc for sure.

  4. Thomas Partey and Sergej Milinković-Savić / Xhazka would be an elite set-up at the heart of our midfield.
    Martin Ødegaard just ahead, pulling the strings. [Ozil skill levels with the heart/motivation] to begin our press.
    Saka and Mudryk on either side are feeding our strikers, Edie/Jesus and also driving forward. Martinelli waiting to help if needed.
    Zinny playing from the back on the inside left,
    while Benjamin makes a run on the right supporting Saka and drawing defenders.
    Tenacious Gabriel asserting his defensive authority, with Saliba purring alongside [Rolls Royce-like]
    Just enjoying being a Gooner!!
    Looks like a plan is coming together. COYG!!!

  5. Is he the type of midfielder we need? From what I can tell, he would be most comfortable in xhaka’s position (within our current setup), and could arguably play odegaard’s role if needed, but would probably struggle if asked to cover Partey.
    I really think we should be looking for someone who’s a bit more defence-minded and would be *most* comfortable in Partey’s position, but could also cover xhaka’s role if needed.

  6. Would be perfect for the advanced 8 position but unfortunately I don’t see this one ever happening. My hunch is that after splashing most of our budget on Mudryk we will then move back in for Tielemens for £15M-£18M and wouldn’t mind it tbh
