Arsenal looking to sign Bayern Munich star

Arsenal are chasing Bayern Munich's Mario Mandzukic, as they look to provide Olivier Giroud with some competition up front.

Arsene Wenger has been told he will have upwards of £70million to spend this summer has decided he would be better off bringing in a number of cheaper reinforcements, rather than splashing a large amount on one world-class player.

Despite the fact that Bayern have stated there is still a place for Mandzukic in the team, the Mirror claims that the striker will be available at a price.

The Croatian frontman has been linked with a move away since Robert Lewandowski agreed to join the club on a free in November last year and a reasonable offer could tempt the German giants to sell.

Mandzukic has impressed this season, scoring a total of 29 goals for club and country, in a total of 41 games.

Wenger has watched his side go from title challengers to top-four strugglers within the space of a few months, which he puts down to a lack of depth within the squad.

Alongside Mandzukic, the Frenchman will look to bring in a replacement for the ageing Mikel Arteta, and is reportedly keeping an eye on Manchester United's Tom Cleverley, as well as Real Sociedad's Antoine Griezmann.

With Bacary Sagna looking set to leave the club this summer on a free transfer, Southampton's talented young right-back Calum Chambers would also move to the Emirates in a £10million deal.

While it is good to get business done early, Arsenal need to focus their attention on securing a top four finish and qualifying for the Champions League, as without the lure of playing in the top European competition, it will be a massive task to convince players of Mandzukic's quality to join.
