While we all know Arsenal has a wealth of midfield talent it appears as if manager Arsene Wenger is prepared to lose some players this summer with Santi Cazorla being linked with Atletico Madrid, and only yesterday talk of Manchester City going after Jack Wilshere in order to increase the clubs total of home-grown players in their squad.

Add to this the fact that Mikel Arteta and Abou Diaby will probably be let go and that Tomas Rosicky will turn 35 later this year and it makes sense that Wenger is looking for fresh talent, and thinks he has found it in the form of Inter Milan’s creative playmaker Mateo Kovacic.

The 20-year-old Croatian international is just the kind of player to suit Arsenals style of play as you can see in the video below, but the Gunners will face stiff opposition from other Premiership sides for his signature, and also know the £18 million rated player is also wanted by Barcelona, but that Catalan giants cannot sign anyone until their current ban is lifted in January which gives Wenger hope of getting a deal done this summer.
