Mikel Arteta told possible £68 million Arsenal signing ‘will be football great’
Sergej Milinković-Savić has predicted that Arsenal’s target Dusan Vlahovic, will finish his playing career as one of football’s greats.
The Gunners may be impressing this season after a slow start to the new campaign, but there is a strong feeling that Mikel Arteta knows that he still needs to add another striker to that attack, especially as Alexandre Lacazette looks all set to leave
And that has led to alot of speculation that the Gunners boss is determined to try and secure a transfer deal for Vlahovic, after the big centre-forward became the talk of Serie A having gunned in 25 league goals in 2021, more than any other player
The Serbian international, who was born in 2000, rifled home 21 goals in 37 outings in Serie A last term and he’s continued his fine goalscoring form since the start of the new campaign.
The Gunners are facing serious competition for his signature with the likes of Tottenham and Atletico Madrid, all interested in a move for him, and amid the speculation, Milinković-Savić knows why and in a recent interview, he maintains that “good” doesn’t describe the striker well because he is simply better than good.
He told FIFA: “Good? He’s not good, he’s outstanding. I’m quite certain the stats would back that up, considering his age.
“However, I think he’s the type of player who still gets annoyed when he doesn’t play well, so he’s definitely going to get better and get the world talking about him, which is something I like about him.
“In both training and matches, he never takes it lightly when he misses a chance, so he has a hunger for scoring goals and winning. I like how he wants to prove himself, so I think he’s bound to become one of the greats.”
