While Sergej Milinković-Savić has been linked with a move to the Premier League for the past few years, Arsenal have never been pushed forward as his destination.

However, that has now changed, with the Gunners now seen as the likeliest destination for the Serbia international going forward.

This is pushed by Corriere dello Sport on Wednesday, who have an article dedicated to the midfielder’s future, completely dismissing a claim made by the English media.

It’s been said Arsenal have made an offer for Milinković-Savić, but Corriere make it clear ‘there are no offers, either to Lazio’ or to the player’s agent, Mateja Kezman.

That doesn’t mean the Gunners aren’t in the mix, because ‘the interest is confirmed’, and there ‘were also talks with the agent’.

In fact, Arsenal, to date, ‘are to be considered in pole position in the race’ for the Lazio star, and if they don’t show up in January, they ‘could do so in June’.

It’s recalled that Milinković-Savić did reject Mikel Arteta’s side in the past, but the Gunners’ project is now ‘more convincing’ and is being ‘reconsidered’ by both the player and his management,

Regarding the price, Kezman has said his client would not leave on a free, and he will try to bring to Lazio ‘the most advantageous offer possible’ in order to allow the club to get between €40-50m.

That’s the aim, but we all know Claudio Lotito is a tough negotiator and values his star at far more, and Corriere point out that, at the end of the day, he can ‘fix the price he wants’.
