Arsenal are continuing their pursuit of further midfield additions this summer and according to the latest report from Italian outlet ilmessaggero.it, the Gunners have submitted an offer for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The report claims that the offer is thought to be worth around €55 million (£47 million), although this is £13 million less than what the Serie A side want, who remain desperate to retain his services ahead of the upcoming season.
Arsenal have reportedly agreed personal terms with Youri Tielemans, although the club are yet to submit an official bid for the Leicester City star.
The Belgium international has been tipped to leave this summer as his contract expires next summer and he is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal. Arsenal have been heavily linked with the midfielder, with a £25m bid reportedly in the pipeline.
And according to GiveMeSport, Tielemans has reached an agreement over personal terms with Arsenal after opening talks over a year ago. However, until Arsenal make a concrete offer, he will be staying with the Foxes.
