Arsenal have turned their attention on Croatian defender Domagoj Vida. Vida, 29, starred for Croatia as they shone at the World Cup before losing 4-2 to France in the final and is keen to test himself in Premier League
He only joined Besiktas from Dynamo Kiev for £8million in January and the Turkish club have rejected a £13.5m bid by Liverpool this summer.
“It’s always been my dream to be in the Premier League. I don’t know if the offers due to come in this transfer window will ever come again. I want [Besiktas] to facilitate [the move] for me,” Vida said.
Arsenal have already spent £70m on their transfers and have some financial problems to sign new players.
