Arsenal Ready To Launch Shock Bid For Atletico Madrid Star

By in News

Arsene Wenger is preparing to launch a surprise offer for Atletico Madrid striker Mario Mandzukic after missing out on Edinson Cavani.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly priced the Gunners out of a move for the clinical Uruguayan, despite reports suggesting Cavani is keen to secure a move away from the French capital.

A fee in the excess of å£60m has been demanded by Laurent Blanc‰Ûªs side, and the north London club are not prepared to meet their astronomical fee.

With his transfer plans rattled, the Express have claimed that an audacious move for Mandzukic could be in the pipeline as Wenger looks to provide competition for Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud.

The Croatia international only moved to the La Liga champions in the summer from Bayern Munich, but pundits have claimed that the striker is struggling to find his feet in Spain.

The 28-year-old has scored seven goals in just 15 appearances this season, and there is space in the Arsenal squad after Lukas Podolski and Yaya Sanogo left the Emirates on temporary deals.
