Arsenal get green light to sign Man Utd target for massively reduced fee

Lazio have given Arsenal and Juventus a chance to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic for a fraction of his transfer value.

Following long-term links with Manchester United, Lazio have always set the bar high for Milinkovic-Savic. Claudio Lotito has previously said it would take €120 million to prize the midfielder away. However, with contract talks between the club and the player going nowhere, the Lazio president is ready to accept €50 million.

The proposal would see Milinkovic-Savic, who is out of contract in 2024, leave Lazio on loan in January for €10 million, with a €40 million buy obligation included for the end of the season. [TuttoJuve – in Italian]

According to casino en linea, the odds for Milinkovic-Savic to score the first goal in this game is 9.50 at the time of writing this article.
