Arsenal tipped to pay buyout fee for international attacker
According to a report in the Mirror, Arsenal are eyeing a summer swoop for Southampton attacker Dusan Tadic after learning he has a buyout clause worth just £13m in his contract.
Arsene Wenger looks increasingly likely to defy fans and sign a new contract with the boss pressing ahead with his transfer plans ahead of what’s going to be a busy summer in north London.
With the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Lucas Perez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all potentially leaving at the end of the season we’re going to need to rejuvenate our attack and it looks like Wenger is eyeing a bargain.
Tuttomercatoweb, via the Mirror, claim that the boss has been alerted to the fact that Tadic has a buyout clause worth just £13m written in to his Southampton contract and is now considering a move this summer.
However, we aren’t the only club eyeing the Serbian international as the report indicates that Juventus and Napoli are also keen and could lure the attacker to Italy at the end of the season.
Tadic has been a great signing for the Saints since moving to the South Coast in 2014 and he has plenty of experience in the Premier League, which is always a good thing.
The 28-year-old is also capable of playing anywhere across the attacking positions so he’d give Wenger plenty of options if he was to join Arsenal this summer.
At just £13m, I can certainly see why the boss is tempted to go for Tadic and while he’s nowhere near the level of Sanchez or Ozill, I think he’d be a very useful squad player so would welcome his signing – along with a couple of top class additions if Sanchez/Ozil leave.
