Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up rather excitedly after Metro claimed that another striking target may well be on their radar.
As anyone who has not been living under a rock knows, the Gunners have been chasing AC Milan forward Mario Balotelli, but it seems Arsene Wenger is also keen on Croatian international Mario Mandzukic.
The Bayern Munich forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League all season long and it seems that he may finally be about to get one with Wenger prepared to pay up to £15 million for his services.
Should Wenger wish to land the former Wolfsburg forward, he will face tough competition from the likes of Chelsea who are as we know on the lookout for another forward with manager Jose Mourinho a big fan of the big Croat.
It seems that Mandzukic’s future does not lie at the Allianz Arena and given he has already impressed us this World Cup, we can only see his stock rising higher as the tournament progresses – should his team get through a tricky group of course.
Arsenal fans. Would you pay £15 million for Mandzukic or is that too much money for an unproven player in the Premier League? Let us know your thoughts below.
