Arsenal told to pay big for midfield target

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have to spend big if he wants to sign Marcelo Brozovic, according to Dinamo Zagreb’s executive director Zdravko Mamic.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the 22-year-old midfielder in recent weeks, with reports having indicated that an offer of around £5m-£6m for the player dubbed the ‘new Luka Modric’ is on the cards.

Wenger is rumoured to see him as a wise long-term addition for a number of reasons, leading to talk of a swoop as soon as January.

Brozovic’s agent, Miroslav Bicanic, has also talked up a move for his client, while further fuel has been added to the fire by rumours that Arsenal scouts watched him in action during Croatia’s recent EURO 2016 qualifier against Italy.

Despite talk of a bargain fee being needed for the pass-master, Mamic is adamant that Arsenal, or any other interested club, will have top make him an irresistible offer for the youngster:

“We have no offers,” he is quoted by Goal.

“If someone wants one of our key players, it can only be with a memorable bid, if they knock me off my feet [an offer too good to refuse]. That is my principle. And the numbers appearing in the media do not interest us.”
