As both the player and his agent recognise the situation, Milinković-Savić is reportedly now more open to a move to Arsenal than he was last summer. The Gunners’ improved standing and likely return to the Champions League have changed his perception of the club.

However, Arsenal and other potential suitors might be hesitant to submit significant offers, knowing that Milinković-Savić could be available for free in a year. It’s suggested that Premier League clubs might put forth offers between €20-30m, which would likely be met with initial resistance from Lazio President Claudio Lotito.

Amid this uncertainty, Arsenal has emerged as frontrunners for the Lazio captain’s signature. The Serie A club’s willingness to lower their valuation to £44m has caught the attention of Arsenal and other clubs, who have been monitoring the 28-year-old midfielder for some time.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is keen to bolster his midfield options and find a long-term partner for Thomas Partey. Milinković-Savić could prove to be the perfect addition to the Gunners’ squad.

Meanwhile, Juventus are also eyeing the Serbian international as they look to reinforce their midfield.

As the summer transfer window approaches, the battle for Milinković-Savić is set to intensify, with Arsenal and Juventus closely watching his situation in hopes of securing a deal at a more reasonable price.

With a lowered asking price and the player’s newfound openness to a move, the race for the sought-after midfielder is only just beginning.
