It seems Arsenal shall have a good opportunity to buy Sergej Milinković-Savić from Lazio in the next summer.
The scenario is today explained by Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport, who claims the midfielder is expected to move for a less than expected.
It’s recalled that Lazio had always demanded a minimum of €100m to let the player go. But that happened in a time when he was protected by a long-term contract.
But the Arsenal target doesn’t want to leave for free either, so ‘all roads therefore lead to a sale’ in the summer.
Lazio are said to be demanding €50m to let him go this time, but according to Gazzetta, his agents are actually ‘pushing’ to move him for between €35m and €40m.
Regarding the interested clubs, it’s claimed that Arsenal, as well as Juventus, are ‘at the window, but ready to take action’.
There are no details on how much the Gunners want to spend on that signing, but it seems clear that the discount is pretty attractive for a player of the midfielder’s stature and experience.
