This weeks rumours have been confirmed that Arsenal are interested in signing European wonderkid Sime Vrsaliko, who has been likened to Luka Modric.
The 18-year-old, who is able to play in both a right-back and midfield position, has attracted attention from numerous European clubs, including various Arsenal rivals.
However, this week Dinamo Zagred vice-president Zbravko Mamic came out and confirmed Arsenal as one of the clubs interested in the young player, alongside Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton, Bayer Leverkusen, Sampdoria and many others."
Mamic went on to tell Croatian journalists that although no clubs are specifically front runners for the young player, there are numerous clubs already in communication with the club. Mamic explained: “Some clubs have already spoken to us, many others are calling us for meetings and to watch Vrsaljko in action live, and yes, some clubs are already here.”
In the summer Marseille put in a £4million offer for the young Crotion, but Dinamo Zagreb rejected the offer. However, financial conditions appear to have changed for the club.
Mamic recently admitted that if the club wishes to survive they will be forced to sell some of their better players:
“Our wish is not to sell anybody from our team, but the truth is, that we can only survive if we sell our best players.”
Despite Vrsaljko being young, it is clear he has massive potential, as he has shown for both club and country. Footballfacts believes that these qualities under Arsene Wenger's guidance could make the perfect combination at the Emirates for Arsenal.
