German publication Bild are speculating that there have been the augment of new clubs in the race for Ante Rebic. The Eintracht Frankfurt star has been linked with a move to Tottenham, Everton and Bayern Munich. But, the entry of Arsenal and Manchester United will make things more interesting.
Ante Rebic has been one of the standout performers at the 2018 FIFA World Cup so far. Not even a guaranteed starter before the start of the event in Russia, his displays in the warmup games leading to the tournament saw the player being handed a start out wide against Nigeria.
But, it was his performance and goal against Argentina that propelled him to instant stardom. The player has since been a constant threat from the wings against each and every opposition. If Rebic was a wanted quantity in the group stage, the player’s valuation and number of suitors are both set to increase with Croatia entering the final.
Tottenham and Everton were interested in the player since the start of the World Cup. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, were obvious suitors. Niko Kovac is seeking a reunion with Ante Rebic after taking up the managerial position at Bayern. But, with Eintracht escalating the player’s asking price to €50 million, Kovac is a bit hesitant knowing that the board might not be willing to shell out such a big amount for the Croatian forward.
