Earlier on Friday, we covered an article in the Italian media regarding the future of Sergej Milinković-Savić, who has 18 months left on his Lazio contract, and Arsenal’s interest in him.

The Gunners have become one of the most commonly linked sides with the Serbian midfielder, who returned early from the World Cup after his national team failed to make it out of the group stages.

He himself disappointed during the tournament, which has led to his price falling, which Gazzetta dello Sport pointed out on Friday.

They also stated Arsenal were in the lead to sign Milinković-Savić, and that’s somewhat corroborated by Corriere dello Sport.

The Italian newspaper have a big article on the player, looking at what has been said in England before adding their own information.

They explain that Arsenal ‘have had contact with Mateja Kezman’, the player’s agent, but ‘have not yet submitted offers’.

The Gunners are a ‘real option’ for the player, their interest is ‘certified’, and if a January bid doesn’t come, then ‘it could materialise in a proposal in June’.

As for the price, it’s dropping by the month now, because his contract ends in June 2024, and with him reluctant to renew at Lazio, the Serie A side will have a tough choice to make in the coming weeks.
