Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been aware of this and keen to bring the Croatian at the Emirates this summer to back up Olivier Giroud.
Mandzukic has established himself as one of Bundesliga‘ highly productive player, scored 23 goals in just 36 appearances for the German Champions this season.
According to The Guardian, Nicklas Bentner could leave the Gunners at the end of this season, whose contract is due to expire in this summer. Whereas, Yaya Sanogo is an inexperienced to play regularly in Wenger’s starting XI. Therefore, Mandzukic would be the ideal option at attacking reinforcements for The Londoners.
The former Wolfsburg forward is believed to be valued at around £20m. What do you think, will Mandzukic solve Wenger’s striker issues?
