Austrian International Aleksander Dragovic moved to Dynamo Kiev in 2013 and, despite being under contract for another three years, the 24-year-old is being looked at by both Arsenal and Manchester United. Both Wenger and Van Gaal are looking to reinforce their at times fragile back line according to reports.
Dragovic has been a star player for Kiev since moving from FC Basel for around £8m. It is believed that the young Austrian could cost close to double the price that Kiev bought him for two years ago.
What can he offer the Premier League?
At 6ft 1', Dragovic has some physical presence when on the pitch. He is not the tallest of centre-backs but has the pace that can be vital for the best centre backs in the world. Dragovic has European experience with both FC Basel and Dynamo Kiev. At just 24, Dragovic still has his best years ahead of him, and could help push any side to the next level.
Both Manchester United and Arsenal are expected to be in the market for a defender, and Aleksandar Dragovic could be the ideal candidate for their defensive lines.
Although he is not used to the physicality of the Premier League, I have no doubt that Dragovic would quickly adapt and would be able to improve massively at Arsenal or United by playing against players like Alexis and Di Maria in training.
Valued at around £10m, the young Austrian could be a risk worth taking. We've seen Gabriel come in at Arsenal and fit right in with no time required to 'get used to the Premier League'. Maybe Dragovic could help show that players really don't need time to adapt to the Premier League, and hit the ground running in one of the best leagues in football.
