Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a £6m approach for teenage sensation Tin Jedvaj.
The centre-back is now the most sought after young talent in Croatian football and has already been called up to train with the senior national squad despite his age and inexperience. According to The Sun, the Gunners are now considering a move for the 17-year-old, after Roma failed with their £5m bid a few days ago.
Jedvaj broke into the Dinamo first team last season and the Croatia U-21 side earlier this year. However, with the country's World Cup 2014 hopes in disarray following a defeat to Scotland in the last qualifier, the youngster has been brought in to the senior side by coach Igor Stimac and could be handed his international debut soon.
Jedvaj made 13 appearances for Dinamo during the second half of last season, scoring once. The Croatian champions are reluctant to let go of the defender, who joined their academy back in 2005, but an offer around £6m would be enough to land the teenage star.
The report claims Arsenal are also chasing Swansea City captain Ashley Williams. Arsene Wenger is in the market for an experienced centre-back, after releasing Sebastian Squillaci and informing Johan Djourou to find a new club.
Williams would be a first team signing straightaway, unlike Jedvaj. However, it is understood that the Gunners are not happy with the Swans' £10m valuation of the Welshman, who will turn 29 when the new season kicks off.
Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt director Heribert Buchhagen has revealed they are holding negotiations with out-of-favour Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, regarding a summer move. The Denmark international recently revealed he would be leaving the Gunners before the start of the new season and the Bundesliga outfit have now moved to snap up the 25-year-old.
"We are in serious negotiations with Bendtner," Buchhagen said. Bendtner spent the last two seasons on loan at Sunderland and Juventus.
