Arsenal could strike a shock loan deal for €49m Sergej Milinkovic-Savic later this month

Arse­nal are report­ed­ly ready to sign Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Sav­ic on loan lat­er this month.

The Gun­ners are clos­ing in on Jan­u­ary’s No. 1 tar­get, Shakhtar Donet­sk winger Mihai­lo Mudrik.

But Mikel Arte­ta is also look­ing for depth in mid­field ahead of a chal­leng­ing sec­ond half of the sea­son with the Pre­mier­ship, FA Cup and Europa League.

The Gun­ners have failed to sign Dou­glas Lewis from Aston Vil­la and he has already signed a new contract.

This seems to sug­gest that Arte­ta still wants to sign the cen­tral midfielder.

And Tut­to­Juve sees Milinkovic-Sav­ic could be that kind of guy.

The Lazio ace is out of con­tract in the sum­mer of 2024 but could leave the Ital­ian cap­i­tal lat­er this month.

The for­ward has long been admired by Pre­mier League clubs for his per­for­mances in Serie A, with Arse­nal and Man­ches­ter Unit­ed mak­ing moves in the past.

How­ev­er, Lazio have report­ed­ly reached the lim­it of their patience with his con­tract sit­u­a­tion and he could be forced to cash out.

As a result, the Serie A giant will agree to a six-month rental deal with an oblig­a­tion to buy it for €49m in the summer.

He is a 27-year-old who has played in 22 games this sea­son with 5 goals and 7 assists.

His all-time record for Lazio is 121 goals in 316 appear­ances, an unusu­al num­ber for a midfielder.
