Forget Modric, Arsenal have a £5m Balkan midfield maestro on the cards!

Before anyone points it out, I know Zdravko has a Swiss passport but he is a Serbian international and therefore my Balkan reference is both intelligent and correct! Luka Modric it seems may be heading to Stamford Bridge but it seems that the Arsene Wenger is tailing another youngster to join his impressive array of midfielders.

Arsenal are set to edge Newcastle United for Fiorentina midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic (The Sun).

Maybe Kuzmanovic is a better buy than Luka anyway. For instance Modric is yet to show his class in a top level league whereas ZK (save me typing his name again and wearing out the Z on the keyboard) has a season of Serie A experience under his belt and an impressive season at that, where he has helped the Florence club to within sight of a Champions League spot.
