Here’s a quick peek into one of Arsenal’s summer target.
After scoring 11 times in 23 Bundesliga games for Nuremburg this season, the young Switzerland star has somehow found himself in the much anticipated summer wish-list of Arsenal.
Josip Drmić began his playing career at FC Zürich and rose through the youth ranks, soon playing regularly for Zürich’s reserve team. He eventually made his league debut in February 2010 against Neuchâtel Xamax, coming on as a substitute. He scored his first Swiss Super League goal in a 1–1 away draw against FC Luzern in February 2012. During the 2012–13 season, he scored 13 goals in 31 Super League matches and 19 goals from 39 matches in all competitions.
With such outstanding performances at Zurich, The 21-year-old In the summer of 2013 joined German Bundesliga club 1. FC Nürnberg on a four year contract scoring his first Bundesliga goal in a 2–2 draw against Hertha BSC.
Despite several top striker being linked with a move to the Emirates last summer as well as the winter transfer window with the likes of Benzema, Higuain, Draxler, Suarez just to mention a few topping the chat of players being linked with a move to North London side it has come as a surprise that Wenger has now set his sights at this young Swiss.
However, rumours abound that Wenger will go for the 6ft 2in Nuremburg man in the summer and this might be due to the young forward’s performances, pointing out Wenger’s love for young talents encouraging them and giving them a fair chance to prove themselves on the big stage.
Thus It is easy to see why the Gunners hierarchy rate Drmic as the 21-year-old likely to make the switch to Arsenal, having already made five appearances for World Cup-bound Switzerland.
