Josip Drmic: Fine form for Nurnberg

The 21-year-old Swiss international has been a sensation for the Bundesliga outfit since joining from FC Zurich last summer.

He is currently second in the German scoring charts with 16 goals, only one behind Bayern Munich's Mario Mandzukic.

Reports in Germany had claimed that Arsenal had already moved to secure a deal and Lothar Matthaus, working as a pundit for Sky Deutschland, claimed that the player's wife was already looking for houses in London.

But Drmic has reacted to the speculation and he told Bild: "At the moment I am single and there is no one house hunting in London."

Although he did refuse to rule out a move and added: "What will happen in the future, I don't know. Any boy dreams about playing for Arsenal."

Drmic, who has three-years left on his current deal with Nurnberg, is reported to have a release clause of less than £5million.

And his club admit that they are aware clubs are watching him.

"It would be naive to believe that Josip has not been noticed by anyone and I can not guarantee that he will remain," admitted Nurnberg sporting director Martin Bader.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
