Wenger continues to pursue Bundesliga star.
Arsenal are keeping tabs on VfL Wolfsburg midfielder Zvjezdan Misimovic, according to reports.
The 27-year-old has made 45 league appearances for the Bundesliga side since arriving from Nuremburg last summer, and was influential in the club’s title triumph last season.
As a result, the Bosnian international – dubbed the ‘new Fabregas’ is being lined up as a replacement for the Spaniard, who is continually being linked with a move to Barcelona, according to the News of the World.
The report claims that Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger has made Misimovic one of his primary transfer targets should Fabregas seal a return to his former club next summer.
However, the Wolves are unlikely to settle for anything less than 15 million euros for their playmaker, who is contracted to the the club until summer 2013. (Four Four Two)
Arsene Wenger continues to be linked with a move for in form playmaker Zvjezdan Misimovic and whilst the Wolfsburg midfielder is an impressive player who has been in a rich vein of form in the past 18 months, rumours that his arrival would be to replace an outgoing Cesc Fabregas will be given short shrift by Gunners supporters.
Barcelona have been doing their best to unsettle their former youth team player but so far the Arsenal skipper has made it abundantly clear he has no plans to leave the Emirates anytime soon.
Given the quality in the attacking third available to Wenger both on the pitch and on the bench it seems unlikely he would fork out such a fee for a player who would in all likelihood not be an automatic starter so as such this speculation well be misguided.
