Wenger linked with a move for Wolfsburg attacking midfielder.
Reports are emanating on the grapevine that Arsene Wenger is very keen on Wolfsburg’s impressive playmaker Zvjezdan Misimovic who could apparently be available for as little as £6m although some suggest that the German champions would accept nothing less than a fee in the region of £10m.
Last season’s surprise Bundesliga winners are keen to hold onto their top notch strikers Edin Dzeko and Grafite and therefore may listen to offers for Misimovic who’s recent form for Bosnia has been as incredible as for his club. He has helped his countrymen to a World Cup play-off against Portugal and has netted five goals in the qualifying campaign thus far.
Some foolishly suggest that any move would be made in case the club fail to prevent the repeated overtures from Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas. I find it was unlikely to believe that a) Arsene Wenger will even consider selling his captain and b) if he did he would probably be seeking a far more established name to replace him.
Zvjezdan Misimovic is a top quality player and could well be a decent addition to the current Emirates squad and he would surely jump at the chance of a new challenge having plied his entire career in the Bundesliga.
The Arsenal boss is always on the look out for those continental jewels who are as yet to become household names. Whilst at 27 Misimovic is not as youthful a player as Wenger normally looks to sign, he has shown a great deal of potential that he may feel he could well use at the club.
