Arsenal Expected To Make January Move For Serbian Attacker
Arsenal are expected to make their move for Serbian starlet Lazar Markovic this January but could face stiff competition to land the FK Partizan attacker.
Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, Arsenal face a fight to land Lazar Markovic.
Arsenal are expected to make their move for Serbian starlet Lazar Markovic in January but could face stiff competition to land the FK Partizan attacker, according to talkSPORT.
Markovic has earned a reputation as one of Europe’s most talented youngsters after breaking in to the FK Partizan side aged just 17 and has gone on to make over 50 appearances for the club.
His impressive form has attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs with Arsenal strongly linked with the 18-year-old attacker.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is understood to be a huge fan and talkSPORT claim the Frenchman is ready to make an official move for the Serbian youngster in January.
However, the Londoners could face a major fight to land Markovic with Barcelona, Sevilla, Fiorentina and Roma all also monitoring his situation and may make their interest known this winter.
Markovic’s stock has risen this season after some impressive performances in the Europa League and is now thought to be ready to test himself at the highest level and make a move to one of Europe’s top leagues.

While I’m happy to hear Arsene is ready to make some moves in the transfer window this January, I’m not sure buying more un-proven youngsters is going to do solve the sides current woes.
We desperately need an experienced striker who can come in and make an immediate impact so I think the boss should be concentrating his efforts on that rather than trying to sign Markovic.
