Wenger Eyes Young Serbian Attacking Midfielder
Arsenal are reportedly eyeing another very talented young footballer, as MirrorFootball states that they have been keeping tabs on the 20-year-old Serbian youngster Adem Ljajic.
The talented Serbian international was very close to a move to Manchester United two seasons ago but he eventually joined Fiorentina. He did so because he couldn’t get a work permit in the UK, so he chose to go to the Italian team where he became a first team player almost instantly. The attacking midfielder managed to appear in 52 games and scored 4 goals for the Florence side.
Now after two very successful seasons in Italy, Arsenal’s French manager is ready to finally take him to the Premiership. Ljajic has managed to break into the senior national team at the age of 18 and has managed to feature in 6 games ever since.
Arsenal’s Wenger is looking for all sorts of solutions for his midfield problems, but Lille’s attacking midfielder Eden Hazard seems to be the best solution by a long way. Wenger was also keeping tabs on Monchengladbach’s Reus and Dortmund’s Gotze, but the first one signed with Borussia Dortmund, while the second one chose to extend his contract with the Bundesliga champions, so the Frenchman’s options are running scares now.
Brazilian playmaker Lucas Moura might still be an option, but it’s been said that Real Madrid are in for the attacking midfielder’s signature now which will more than likely inflate his price even more.
Despite being linked with all these big expensive stars, isn’t it more likely that Wenger will buy Ljajic?
