Dinamo Zagreb teenager Mateo Kovacic is back on the radar for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The Daily Star Sunday says the Gunners boss sent his chief scout Bobby Bennett to watch the Croatian midfielder, 17, in action last weekend.

Kovacic scored in a 4-0 win at Osijek and impressed along with striker Mario Situm, 19, who scored twice.

Arsenal were tracking Kovacic earlier in the summer and, with the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, boss Wenger could be in for the Croatian once again.
