Arsenal have been linked with a big-money move for Bayern Munich's Mario Mandzukic as boss Arsene Wenger seeks additions in attack.
Wenger has made no secret of his desire to bring in at least one new striker this summer and Mandzukic has emerged as a target.
The Croatian seems set to leave the Allianz Arena after revealing he does not "correspond with the style of game that [coach Pep] Guardiola wants to play" and stating "it's time for a new challenge" at a press conference earlier this week.
Wenger has travelled to Brazil for the World Cup and it has been claimed he will keep a close eye on Mandzukic at the tournament.
The striker is suspended for Croatia's opener with the hosts on Thursday but is expected to feature in his side's final two group games, against Mexico and Cameroon.
If Arsenal do move for the Bayern star they are likely to face plenty of competition, with Italian giants AC Milan also understood to be interested.
Bayern paid a 13million euro fee to sign Mandzukic from Wolfsburg in 2012 but it is thought they will demand a sum in the region of £25million if he is to be sold this summer.
