Arsenal are one of the clubs keen on signing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with the Serb’s contract at Lazio entering a crucial phase.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal are one of the clubs vying for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, with Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus also waiting in the wings. The Serbian midfielder will have a year left on his Lazio contract next summer, giving clubs an excellent chance to snatch him away on the cheap.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito recently suggested Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s value has jumped from €100 million to €120 million, reflecting on the midfielder’s recent performances. The Serbian international has been sensational this season, scoring 3 goals and providing 7 assists in the first 9 Serie A games.

Yet, his contractual situation states otherwise, with 18 months left on his current deal. Lazio were keen to secure big money in the summer, but manager Maurizio Sarri wanted him to stay, while clubs won’t fork out what the Serie A giants wanted for the 27-year-old Serbian midfielder.

His agent, Mateja Kezman’s recent comments suggest they are keen on exploring options. He said, “Sergej has just 18 months left on his contract; we will have to discuss his situation with Lazio after the World Cup.”

If Lazio cannot sort out his future, top clubs will come sniffing around, especially next summer. After the season ends, many teams will look to get Milinkovic-Savic on the cheap. And there are plenty in the mix, including Manchester United, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

Arsenal are also thought to be keen on signing the Serbian midfielder. Mikel Arteta looked to bring in a new midfielder during the summer. But Granit Xhaka’s superb form this season may have led to a re-think of signing a new player in that position.

The Gunners are also ready to offer Xhaka a new contract. Bringing in a new midfielder in the same position would be doubtful under those circumstances. The 27-year-old Lazio midfielder may well be an opportunistic signing at best. Arsenal will be on the case if he is available.

Qualifying for next season’s Champions League should boost their chances. But in light of other top clubs being in the mix, the Serb would have plenty of options on his table. Arsenal are certainly an attractive destination in the present scenario, but better clarity from Milinkovic-Savic’s camp would be crucial in determining his next move.
