Arsenal and Manchester United target Toni Kroos has been backed to fit into the English premier League by his brother.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks with some reports even claiming Wenger has asked to be kept informed about the midfielder’s situation at the Bernabeu.
Kroos contract at Madrid doesn’t run out until the summer of 2020 but the World cup winner is reportedly considering his future at Madrid and could push for an exit away from the Spanish club this summer.
It is believed that Manchester United are prepared to spend a huge portion of their massive transfer war chest to sign the midfielder and would do what it takes to rival Arsenal for the German midfielder’s signature.
His brother Felix Kroos who currently plays for Union Berlin has backed Toni to be a success should he move to the Premier League.
‘If you’re able to play a great ball, you’ll fit in anywhere,’ he told AS, as quoted by the Metro.
‘I don’t think England would be a problem for Toni. The only adjustment would be missing Christmas,’ the sibling continued.
Felix who is younger of the two also refused to be drawn into the speculation linking Toni to the Premier League.
‘There is always a lot of talk around England and Spain.
‘You should only believe something when it is certain,’ he said.
Kroos has played a total of 90 games for Real Madrid since he moved to the club after the 2014 World cup.
