Arsenal are interested in securing the services of another Real Madrid midfielder according to emerging reports on Tuesday.
The Gunners are yet to resolve the uncertain future of star man Mesut Ozil who only has a year remaining on his contract.
As a result, Arsene Wenger is in pursuit of a new attacking midfielder to bolster his options in that department after witnessing his side’s title challenge collapse in the middle of the season.
According to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Arsenal are one of the clubs now preparing an offer to sign Luka Modric this summer.
Despite being an integral part of a Real Madrid team which is set for a second-straight Champions League final, Zinedine Zidane is reportedly willing to accept an offer for the Croatian star.
The 31-year-old, who now earns £245,000 per week at the Santiago Bernabeu, was linked with a move to the Emirates stadium back in 2008 ahead of his transfer to Tottenham Hotspur from Dinamo Zagreb.
Arsenal are believed to be facing competition from Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Paris Siant-Germain for the signature of Modric.
OPINION: Attempting to sign Modric is certainly a reasonable move but at 31, how many years does he have left in him, considering the astronomical wages he is likely to command.
Nonetheless, the fact that Santi Cazorla is still at the club means Wenger might have tweaked his policy about age when it comes to quality players.
Then again, we are not exactly short of midfielders, are we? If anything, the money should be spent on centre-forwards.
