Arsenal are keeping tabs on Croatian Alen Halilovic The player’s agent, Shay Chen insists that current club Dinamo Zagreb are demanding too high a fee for the 17-year old but alternative reports claim that Halilovic’s father is blocking the move by demanding guarantees over playing time.
Tottenham have until recently been the frontrunners to sign Halilovic with reports claiming that a deal was close to completion in the summer. However the deal collapsed, with conflicting reports.
Arsenal are also interested in signing the young lad spite London rivals Tottenham Hotspur are making moves of landing the youngster this winter claims The Express.
Other big clubs are also interested in signing the players clubs like CSKA Moscow, Bayern Munich have also suggested a possible move for the young starlet.
The young starlet has hinted that he wants a club where he can get first team action and Bayern Munich midfield is already currently stacked with top talent and players like Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez, Toni Kroos and Mario Gotze would all block Halilovic’s route to the Munich first team.
There are reports that if Tottenham are unable to clinch on a deal to sign the player there are possibilities of seeing him joining the gunners in the winter
But the Gunners have the same problem which Bayern Munich have they too have many players for first team action and there is no guarantee for first team action because of the talent like Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla who currently fighting to retain their place in with first team action.
However, Wenger is hoping his reputation for youth development could swing a deal in his favour.
