VIDEO: Reported Arsenal target continues to impress, scores classy goal for Croatia

Croatian Flag

Alleged Arsenal target Marcelo Brozovic continues to impress, as the Dinamo Zagreb midfielder scored a well taken goal for Croatia against Azerbaijan.

Marcelo Brozovic, 21, is a highly rated midfielder who was snapped up by Dinamo Zagreb on a whopping seven-year contract in 2012, with the club looking to replace Milan Badelj, who was sold to Hamburg just weeks before. Whilst he still have five years left on that deal, Brozovic is attracting interest from a host of clubs.

Having appeared for Niko Kovac's Croatia at this summer's World Cup, the likes of Inter Milan and Sevilla were linked with moves to sign Brozovic, but nothing materialised, leaving him to stay in Zagreb. Yet now, Arsenal are being linked with a January bid for the youngster, with Arsene Wenger clearly looking to strengthen his midfield options.

With Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta both struggling for form and fitness this season, it's imperative that Wenger adds another midfield in the New Year, and the technically gifted Brozovic apepars to be on his wish list.

After impressing for Dinamo Zagreb against Celtic in the Europa League, Brozovic has put himself in the spotlight again with this tidy finish for Croatia in their 2016 European Championship qualifier against Azerbaijan. The competition is obviously low, but the way he controlled the ball, turned and coolly passed into the corner should appeal to Wenger - as well as a host of other managers.
