The Etihad Stadium side have formally offered the young Serbian to Arsenal for just £5m and that may well be an avenue Arsene Wenger considers as he looks to bring in a January addition to solidify his back-line.

The 21 year old hasn’t covered himself in glory since his move to Man City in the summer of 2012 but has the potential to mature into a proven performer.

Man City are keen to offload the former Fiorentina man as they seek to wipe his £75k a week wage off their balance sheet.

Wenger sold Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona and didn’t replace the Belgian and as a result the recent loss of Laurent Koscielny has highlighted the lack of strength in depth at the centre of the Arsenal defence.

Nacho Monreal has struggled when used as a makeshift centre-back whilst Per Mertesacker has been disappointing and there is scope for an addition to boost numbers in this regard.
