Serbian Midfielder Set for Arsenal's Move as Arteta is Open to Paying £55.5m

After officially completing the acquisitions of Gabriel Jesus, Fabio Vieira, Marquinhos, and Matt Turner, Mikel Arteta is reportedly considering adding another world-class player to his current roster.

Despite the presence of Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey, Smith Rowe, Elneny, and newcomer Vieira, it is rumored that the Spanish manager is willing to improve his midfield unit.

According to the Boot Room, the Gunners are now willing to make an improved offer of £55.7m to the Italian club after submitting a £45m offer that was turned down. If accepted, this offer could result in the arrival of Serbian international Sergej Milinkovic-Savic at Arsenal.

The 26-year-old, who has also been linked with a transfer to Old Trafford, is being viewed as a perfect box-to-box target and a replacement for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

It should be mentioned that Milinkovic-Savic was a better playmaker than the Belgian international last season, scoring 12 goals and dishing out 11 assists as opposed to Tielemans' five goals and seven assists.
