Five facts on Arsenal linked Croatian sensation Marcelo Brozovic

Arsenal have been linked with a deal to sign Marcelo Brozovic.

No, not a defender, but Arsenal are reported to be interested in a talented attacking midfielder.

The name on their radar is Marcelo Brozovic, with The People claiming they sent two senior scouts to watch him in action last weekend.

Here are five facts about the potential arrival:

1) Brozovic plays for Dinamo Zagreb, playing 14 times this season, scoring twice, with two assists.

2) At 21-years-old he is a Croatian international, playing 29 minutes at the World Cup in Brazil.

3) He heads to the UK this week, when Zagreb play away at Celtic in the Europa League.

4) Brovovic netted seven goals in 13 games for Croatia's under-21 side.

5) He was one of only two home-based players to be selected for Croatia's World Cup squad, and the only outfield star with the other a goalkeeper.
