Arsenal to bid for Bayern Munich striker Mandzukic
Arsenal are preparing a bid for Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic. The Daily Express says the focus is on Bayern Munich striker Mandzukic, 27, who has scored 24 goals this season but is not a regular starter and whose place at the Allianz is further threatened by the arrival of Poland striker Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Bayern are insistent that the Croatia striker, whose contract expires in 2016, is a vital player for them and not for sale, but a bid in excess of £20m may tempt them to sell to allow Pep Guardiola to rebuild over the summer.
