Arsenal step up interest in top transfer target

dragovic.jpgIt is common knowledge not just here in the Football Transfer Tavern but across Europe that this summer Arsenal are after a centre back and it seems  according to Metro that the club are set to up the chase for Aleksandar Dragovic.

The 6 ft 1 in defender has been impressive for Basel and this has led to not only Arsene Wenger considering a bid for the player but also a host of other clubs around Europe who think that the 22-year-old could improve their side.

It seems a given that the player will leave current club Basel in the summer and will be available for around £6 million and after Sporting Director Georg Heitz claimed that: “I know there is interest from England, There is also interest from Russia, Germany and Italy but no deal has been reached,” it seems that a move is certainly on the cards but Wenger will have to act fast for the player who is well known for his passing range and imposing, powerful style

Will the Gunners lure the powerful Austrian in the summer? Rate this rumour below.
