Arsenal are reportedly close to agreeing a deal for Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, a move that could help the Croatian club seal the permanent signing of Manchester United forward Angelo Henriquez.

Brozovic, 22, has been linked with a move to north London throughout the season after his agent revealed in November he had held discussions with the Gunners over a January move.

The Daily Mail now report that Dinamo have confirmed a bid in the region of £6m from Arsene Wenger's side.

The Croatian side are also in the process of finalising a permanent deal for 20-year-old Chilean Henriquez, who left Old Trafford to join the club on a season-long loan in the summer.

Dinamo manager Zoran Mamic has confirmed the club have the option of securing Henriquez on a permanent deal at any point, a process that could be sped up with the cash from the Brozovic deal.

On Henriquez, Mamic was quoted as saying by Chilean outlet Presna Futbol: "Taking Henriquez depends on us, not on Manchester United.

"We took him with the right of first refusal which stands at around €1.5m and we have already signed a contract with him for the summer. There is no longer any doubt, he is ours and the story is resolved."

Henriquez left Universidad de Chile to join United in 2012 but is yet to make a first team appearance for the club, having had spells out on loan at Wigan Athletic and Real Zaragoza.

The youngster has scored nine goals in the HNL – Croatia's top flight – and in the Europa League, having also netted four inside 13 minutes in a cup clash in late October.

During his loan in Croatia, Henriquez revealed United have maintained close contact with the player but has admitted the possibility of extended stay in Zagreb appeals to him.

"I love Zagreb, this is a great city, the food is good, the club and results are great," Henriquez told 24sata.

"I would like to stay as long as possible and play in the Champions League for Dinamo. But Manchester United are following me. They call me after the league games where I score."
