Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Report according to the Mirror, claims Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is said to be planning a late-window swoop for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, who has previously been linked with Arsenal.
The Blues have admitted defeat in their pursuit of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku and are now considering other options, one of which has been previously linked with the Gunners this summer.
The Croatian joined the Italian champions last summer in a fee believed to be £16.1m from Atletico Madrid. While with the Rojiblancos, he netted 13 goals in 26 appearances for the La Liga giants.
However, the arrival Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli has seen him down the pecking order. He made his move to the Turin in a £75m move, which has made the Croatian’s place in the squad come into question.
In addition, there is according to an Italian media claiming we’re interested in the 30-year-old this summer as we are keen on boosting out attacking upfront before the end of this summer.
It’s believed that Mandzukic can leave Juventus this summer if a bid worth £17m comes in for him which is well within the price-range of every club linked.
