Last month, claims from Italy stated Arsenal are ready to move for Sergej Milinković-Savić in the summer. On May 5th, Il Messaggero reported the Gunners received a boost as Juventus aren’t willing to meet Lazio’s demands.

The midfielder has a deal expiring in 2024 and repeated claims in Italy have stressed he’ll leave the Serie A side after this season. Lazio will play their last tie of the season against Empoli later this weekend.

Arsenal’s interest in the 28-year-old is highlighted by Corriere dello Sport when discussing his future.

The Serbia international is waiting to finish the season, while his agent could take further steps to place him at another club. It’s said the representative ‘will re-establish contacts’ with clubs that were interested in his client in the past, with ‘Arsenal above all’.

That’s because the Premier League is a ‘welcome destination’ for the player in the next window. At the moment, the agent has no meeting scheduled with the Biancocelesti.

Lazio chairman Claudio Lotito has to raise funds to bring in new faces and it could be partly achieved by cashing in on Milinković-Savić’s sale, and has tried to find out if Milan or Juventus could be interested.

The chief is asking for €40m but the report states it’ll be a success if he gets €25-30m, meaning this could be a relatively cheap deal for Arsenal to pull off.
