Arsenal are weighing up a bid for Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic. The Daily Mail says Bayern are reluctant to sell but Mandzukic wants regular football and has one year left on his contract.

The 27-year-old came on as a substitute for Thomas Muller against Manchester United and gave Bayern's attack even greater threat. The Croat is clever in his movement, aggressive, technically adept and good in the air.

Mandzukic believes his performances and goals record warrant a regular place in Pep Guardiola's starting line-up but the summer arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund will only serve to restrict his game-time further.
