Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Marcelo Brozovic is a reported target this January, and the Croatian is keen on a move to Arsenal, according to the Daily Star.
The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal and Liverpool both hoping to secure his signature.
With Brozovic allegedly hoping to secure an exit away from Dinamo this January, his agent has been talking up a potential move to Arsenal.
“We are talking to several clubs, although there is nothing concrete at this moment,” he said.
“We know of Arsenal’s interest, but there is nothing agreed. At this moment Marcelo is with Dinamo and everything depends on Dinamo.

“We hope he can change clubs and come to England as it is one of the best leagues in the world, but the decision depends on Dinamo.
“Of course Marcelo would be interested in playing in the Premier League with a club such as Arsenal.”
The talented midfielder is highly sought after at the moment, but is certainly not a priority this January. Arsene Wenger needs to be focusing on more defensively minded players, with an attacking midfielder the last player we should be targeting.
The Frenchman has revealed that we are on the lookout for at least two players this window, and Brozovic is unlikely to be one of them. Fans will be hoping for a centre-back and a defensive midfielder, but Wenger claims his sights are firmly set on reinforcing the defence.
