After failing to secure the signature of any quality addition to the current Arsenal team, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is now reportedly keen on acquiring the service of former Tottenham’s midfielder, Luka Modric from Real Madrid. Sportsdirect News are reporting that Arsenal are keen on signing the former Tottenham man and are prepared to spending as much as £25million to acquire his services.
Modric who only 2 seasons ago joined Real Madrid is reportedly unsettled at Real Madrid due to lack of playing time and as such he is considering leaving the Spanish capital club. Manchester United were just last week reported to be preparing a £25million bid for the highly rated Croatian but reports this morning have it that Arsenal is set to join the race to sign him. Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the Croatians as he tried to sign him way before he joined Tottenham.
However, it is important to note that having failed in their bid to sign Argentina’s Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid, Arsenal’s not so good relationship with Real Madrid will likely put paid to any potential deal for Modric.
The gunners have so far failed in the pursuit of Rooney, Higuain, Fellaini, Bender and many others and are now looking to save face.
Do you think Arsenal actually need Modric?
