This Serbian international has proved a big hit in Serie A and now the big guns of Arsenal and AC Milan are sniffing around a player who could be a much needed signing for both clubs.
rentina midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic is a target for Arsenal and Milan according to his agent, but could sign a new deal with La Viola soon.
The Serbian is under contract with the Serie A side until 2011 but his representative Marko Naletilic has confirmed rivals Milan are monitoring his situation.
Arsene Wenger is also a huge admirer of the young midfielder according to the agent, who understands 21-year-old Kuzmanovic is viewed as potential star of the future.
“Kuzmanovic is a good young player and him trying to play for such a big club as Milan is normal,” Naletilic told Lady Radio.
“Kuz is being followed by the Rossoneri, but Arsenal’s coach Wenger also finds him attractive.” (Setanta Sports)
£9m rated Kuzmanovic arrived in Florence as something of an unknown quantity but is now a first team regular who in his first season at the club helped guide Claudio Prandelli’s side to their best Serie A season in a decade. Now other teams are regularly linked with the 21 year old and even though he under contract for three more years this hasn’t stopped the constant speculation about the former Basel player’s future. Now that La Viola are also back in the Champions League it could be harder to tempt Zdravko to leave however he has been said to be keen on a move to the Premier League which would give Arsene the upper hand in the ensuing war for his signature. Do Gunners fans feel that the club should be aiming for bigger names or is Arsene’s penchant for taking relatively unknown commodities and turning them into household names a wiser financial move?
