Arsenal are reportedly going to make a bid for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic in the January transfer window. The Serbian rejected the opportunity in the summer transfer window.

However, he is open to making a move to the Premier League giants in January. Although, the Gunners will have to satisfy the high demands of the Lazio president.

ARSENAL AND SERGEJ MILINKOVIC SAVIC TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY

According to reports, Arsenal are going to make a bid for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic in the January transfer window. The report also claims that he is now open to a move to the Gunners. Savic had reportedly rejected the opportunity to join them in the summer transfer window. However, the midfielder is open to the possibility of a move. The Serbian midfielder wants to test himself in the Premier League. Hence, this is the perfect time for him to leave Lazio.

The report also claims that he is ready to reject contract extension offers from Lazio to make the move happen. Sergej’s contract with the Italian giants ends in the 2024 summer transfer window. Hence, there is a chance that Arsenal will get a cheap deal for the Serbian midfielder. Manchester United are also monitoring his situation. However, he would love to play under Mikel Arteta. Although, there is still work left to be done to bring the Serbian midfielder to the Emirates.

THE GUNNERS WILL HAVE TO CONVINCE THE LAZIO PRESIDENT TO SELL THEIR STAR MIDFIELDER

According to reports, the main problem in this deal is convincing the Lazio president to sell their star midfielder. He is refusing to sell the Serbian midfielder for a low price. The president of the Italian giants continues to demand a mega price of 120 million for their star midfielder. This is a very high price due to his contract situation with the club. However, this is a risk that Lazio are ready to take to convince him to sign a new contract. Hence, the deal is going to be a long one to negotiate for Arsenal.

Another problem is Juventus and Real Madrid remain interested in the midfielder. However, Juventus are expected to be out of the race due to their financial troubles and legal issues. Real Madrid are mentioned because their dream of the Serbian is to play for the La Liga giants one day. Hence, Arsenal will have to be smart with the transfer. The report also confirms that the Gunners are going to make a 60 million bid plus Albert Sambi Lokonga for the services of Sergej Milinkovic Savic.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has already sanctioned the signing of Savic. He has also sanctioned the move to include Belgian midfielder Lokonga in the deal. However, there are fears that the Serbian midfielder is using the Gunners for his own benefit. The theory is he is trying to get a bigger contract from Lazio. It is logical because Milinkovic Savic is linked with a Premier League move for the last seven years.
