One shot, one assist; £5m Arsenal defensive midfield target impresses against Celtic

Arsenal target Marcelo Brozovic was in fine form as Dinamo Zagreb defeat Celtic 4-3.

Arsenal's reported pursuit of a defensive midfielder has seen them linked with a host of potential signings, stretching far and wide.

The likes of William Carvalho, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Cristian Ledesma have all been touted as possible targets for Arsene Wenger, but the name Marcelo Brozovic continues to fill up column inches.

The 22-year-old Croatian has been starring with Dinamo Zagreb this season, and has attracted interest from a number of clubs.

Scouts will have no doubt been watching him tonight, as he faced off against Celtic in the Europa League, as the group stage of the competition reached its climax.

Brozovic showed his quality once again, scoring a goal and assisting another as Dinamo ran out 4-3 winners in Zagreb, whilst he posted an 81% pass completion percentage.

It wasn't enough to see Dinamo go through, with Red Bull Salzburg and Celtic going through at the top of Group D, and their exit will raise question marks over Brozovic's future again.

Arsenal were linked with a £5m bid to sign him last month, and with the January transfer window just a matter of weeks away, interest could increase with Dinamo no doubt feeling the pinch from no European competition revenue.
