Arsenal given Go Ahead for Serie A starlet’s summer transfer

I wonder if the subject came up when Arsenal were talking to the Serie A club Internazionale in January about the loan move of our Germany international Lukas Podolski. Even if not, the deal that saw the World Cup winning striker move to Italy, no matter how badly it has gone for Podolski in Milan, should give us a good chance of beating our Premier League rivals to the summer transfer of their starlet Mateo Kovacic.

In fact, a Metro report claims that the talented 20-year old’s current club have already given Arsenal the go ahead to sign him in the summer, as long as we meet their valuation of course, which is just over £17 million.
