Arsenal hunting Nuremburg’s Swiss hitman?
According to the German press, Arsenal are interested in Nuremburg striker Josip Drmic, with Arsene Wenger’s expanding his search for a new striker for next season.
Arsenal are in the market for striking reinforcements, with Olivier Giroud the only viable option up top at present, and have been heavily linked with a move for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
Now, according to German newspaper ‘Bild’ (via the Metro), Wenger has cast his eye on Drmic, with the Swiss international potentially a cut-price option for the Frenchman.
The 21-year-old has been in excellent form of late, and finds himself currently eighth in the Bundesliga goalscoring charts, just five goals behind Bayern Munich-bound Robert Lewandowski.
Capable of playing anywhere along the attacking line, Drmic has earned five caps for Switzerland, bagging two goals.
While pacey and possessing good technical ability, it is the striker’s versatility that will be the most attractive of his traits, and he may be a shrewd investment, with his price rumoured to be hovering around the £7m mark.
