Arsenal have missed out on young Swiss striker Josip Drmic, who looks set to join Bayer Leverkusen instead, claims Bild.
German legend Lothar Mattheus has been claiming for most of the season that the 21-year-old Nurnburg forward will move to the Emirates if the Gunners meet his €6m release clause.
“You will see Drmic will go to Arsenal for 8 million – I was right before and I’ll be right again,” said the former Germany captain, who probably should have kept his mouth shut, after the German daily claimed Drmic’s move to Leverkusen is all but wrapped up.
Drmic has lit up the Bundesliga this campaign, scoring 16 goals, and impressing with his pace and clinical finishing.
Arsenal badly need forward reinforcements this summer, but will have to look elsewhere now the bargain Swiss has been snapped up.
