Exclusive: Arsenal expected to table bid for winger with £53million release clause

Arsenal are expected to the busiest of the top six club when the transfer window comes alive in the summer and the reason is not far-fetched – the club have failed to win the League after over a decade of drought and to compound their problems, they will not be featuring in the elite Champions League competition next season.

While the North London club are already linked with the signing of some top-notch players, the Gunners are expected to make an offer for Serbian and Benfica winger Andrija Zivkovic , according to the Metro.

The former Partizan Belgrade attacker is said to have impressed with Benfica this term despite given limited chances. He has featured in only 20 League games for the Liga NOS side, and four of those cameos have come from the bench.

He is very much remembered for helping the club win the domestic title last term and he featured prominent in the Champions League campaign, particularly against Manchester United. However, Benfica have failed to defend the title this season as they trail FC Porto by seven points with a game to close the season, leading to speculations that they will cash in on some of their players.

The 21-year-old winger was closely watched by Manchester United and Liverpool last season but Arsenal appear to have taken notice of him as they prepare to fortify their squad for the upcoming season. Fans that are frequent visitors to bitcoin gambling sites know that the stakes are now high to be a Gunners supporter as the club will spend to sign new players.

At the opening of the transfer window, Arsenal are expected to unleash part of their transfer war-chest on  Zivkovic as he has impressed them during their scouting missions.The impressive winger is said to have a £53million release clause inserted in his contract and the prospect of signing for Arsenal is one that has greatly appealed to his representatives.

Arsenal sold Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott in the January transfer window and they are yet to replace the out-gone stars.  Wenger has claimed that Arsenal are only two to three signings away from being  title competing side.
